Abstract [en]

This article analyses two plays by Guadeloupean writer Gerty Dambury that offer two complementary perspectives on the Guadeloupe general strike of 2009: Les Atlantiques amers (2009) and Des doutes et des errances (2014). The discussion will focus on each play in turn. The first section, covering Les Atlantiques amers, provides an analysis of the dramatic devices used by Dambury to articulate the relation between art and politics. The second section is an examination of Des doutes et des errances, and the ways in which Dambury proceeds to a reassessment of the themes of politics, identity, and immigration explored in Les Atlantiques amers.
