Abstract

Abstract:

A manifestation of Édouard Glissant’s vision for the future of literary production unbounded by the old divisions between poetry, novel, and essay, this article explores the intermediality between Gaël Faye’s album, Pili pili sur un croissant au beurre (2012), and his novel Petit pays (2016) through Glissant’s conception of creolization. The orality and complex identities of the novel’s prose and the poetry of his album’s lyrics are apparent in the multiplicity of narrative voices. These multilingual and pluralistic identities further resonate in the rhizomatic mix of music, musical styles and musical collaborations, and the memories, people, and stories that Faye brings to life through his works.
