It is through Glissant’s reading of Lautréamont that a dynamic of liberating tensions appears at the very heart of the anxieties of influence the anti-colonialist writers, Aimé Césaire and Édouard Glissant in particular, could not totally escape. Glissant’s decolonial reading of Lautréamont passes through the prism of the revolutionary interpretation that Césaire had first made of it. Reading these three poets « in relation », to use a key term in Glissant's thought, will allow us to analyse Lautréamont's fundamental role in the construction of a literary (disaf-)filiation freed from the shackles of French tradition, whereby influence is no longer dependent on a vertical and hierarchical axis, but is turned instead into traces and political/aesthetic strategies.
