This chapter explores Suzanne Césaire’s engagement with surrealism in her essays published between 1941 and 1945 in the journal Tropiques, which employ surrealism as a literary, cultural, and political tool with which to construct a distinctly Martinican cultural identity. This chapter demonstrates not only Césaire’s immense importance as a cultural figure in Martinique but also how her anti-imperialist writings constitute some of the most sustained engagements with surrealism produced in the Caribbean context.
