"Volviendo al Caribe" raises historical and current debates about the Caribbean as a region. The author wonders why the plantation continues to be the predominant identity explanation. Likewise, the question is raised as to whether Caribbean integration, despite decades of efforts, is still a utopia.
The text is also a journey through the insular and continental Caribbean in order to better understand its entrails, its mysteries and its realities. Crossings made in various ways. The first is through his books and their authors. In this way we will get to know, for example, Martinique and the work of one of its great creators: Eduard Glissant. And direct, personal trips in which the author is a participating observer in the Colombian Caribbean, Cuba and Haiti, just to mention a few.
