This chapter first sets out the book’s purpose, which is to introduce Chamoiseau’s oeuvre and the growing field of related critical studies. By taking into account the various facets of Chamoiseau’s output and experience, this work aims to offer a broad overview of his accomplishments and contributions to postcolonial writing. The chapter then provides an overview of the author’s strategies of masquerade in Martinican and Caribbean contexts, his main phases of writing as defined through role-play, and an overview of his reputation as an artist and activist.

Keywords:   Caribbean writers, postcolonial writing, masquerade, Martinican context, Caribbean context, role-play
