Coined by the Martiniquais poet and philosopher Édouard Glissant, the term Tout-Monde” [All-World] first appeared in 1987 in his novelMahagony. Constantly redefined by the author in his subsequent works, the Tout-Monde does not have a precise definition. It is a shifting concept which describes a way of looking at the world by considering a place and relationships with the living world in a state of permanent change. It is a universe in which the imaginary mingles with the real, to leave room open for the unpredictable and reconcile what at first glance might seem contradictory.
