Édouard Glissant House

The Édouard Glissant House is the last house owned by Édouard Glissant (09/21/1928 – 02/11/2011. Acquired in 1996, Édouard Glissant wrote there – traveling between New York where he taught and Paris where he carried out various cultural projects – his latest essays and novels such as ‘Sartorius. Le roman des Batoutos / The novel of the Batoutos’ and ‘ Philosophie de la Relation / Philosophy of Relationship’. Édouard Glissant considered this second home, facing the Diamond Rock, as a primary inspiration place, and often repeated that he felt there like on a boat. In 2022, the Édouard Glissant House received the ‘illustrious house / Maison des illustres’ label. This label was created and is awarded by the French Culture Ministry, to promoting places whose vocation is to preserve and transmit the memory of women and men who have distinguished themselves in political, scientific, social, and cultural French history.
