    “In Aimé Césaire the great surrealist tradition draws to a close, achieves its definitive meaning and is destroyed: surrealism, a European movement in poetry, is snatched from the Europeans by a black man who turns it against them and assigns a rigorously defined function to it … a Césaire poem explodes and whirls about itself like a rocket, suns burst forth whirling and exploding like new suns—it perpetually surpasses itself. Aimé Césaire’s voice, beautiful like nascent oxygen.” JEAN-PAUL SARTRE “In Aimé Césaire the great surrealist tradition draws to a close, achieves its definitive meaning and is destroyed: surrealism, a European movement in poetry, is snatched from the Europeans by a black man who turns it against them and assigns a rigorously defined function to it … a Césaire poem explodes and whirls about itself like a rocket, suns burst forth whirling and exploding like new suns—it perpetually surpasses itself. Aimé Césaire’s voice, beautiful like nascent oxygen.” JEAN-PAUL SARTRE, taken from his introduction to the Anthologie de la poésie nègre et malgache de langue française (Paris: PUF, 1948) and the sea makes a necklace of silence for the earth, * My heart will not deliver me from my memories… * And it is true that there is something in you that has never been able to submit, * you are the passage of seabirds as well you who are the wind through the salty ipomeas of consciousness insinuating yourself from another world * the path smiles back at the sunsets stones tame the raging sea […] The nothingness of eyes the nothingness of nightmares the nothingness of memory the nothingness of indifference * Thinking is too noisy
