This language that is every stone examines the concept of creolisation, an idea brought to prominence by poet and philosopher Édouard Glissant. Glissant defined creolisation as a constant state of cultural transformation, whereby endless local difference emerges from recurrent contact between people—with one another—as well as the natural world.
