Avec sa place majestueuse dans la nature et avec sa structure racinaire, arborescente et genealogique, l'arbre possede traditionnellement une symbolique importante dans le paysage identitaire. Lorsque la symbolique de l'arbre est depossedee de ses caracteristiques et que sa structure et sa force sont menacees, elle revele une vision tourmentee du paysage identitaire. Au niveau de son systeme racinaire, la symbolique de l'arbre est limitee, destabilisee, voire deracinee de sa force, et la symbolique du rhizome offre une autre facon d'apprehender la structure genealogique. Pour devoiler les aspects de la colonisation, Thierry T. Gustave explore la symbolique de l'arbre et celle du rhizome dans les oeuvres litteraires de la Martinique et de la Guadeloupe. Son ouvrage analyse plus particulierement la flore antillaise comme metaphore et representation du paysage identitaire dans luie et vent sur Telumee Miracle de Simone Schwarz-Bart, Delice et le fromager de Xavier Orville, et Pays mele de Maryse Conde.
