We would like to interrogate the use made by the contemporary francophone writer from Martinique, Edouard Glissant, of certain texts dating back 1910, written by the French traveler Victor Segalen. It would seem that Glissant not only refers to Segalen's theories on Exotism in his own theoretical work, but also that he borrows and even rewrites in his own poetic writings whole passages from Segalen's poetry - thus creating a strange "debt" for a writer who wants to sever all links with the old colonial power.
