It's been a century since the women of Martinique and Guadeloupe have been writing. In 1924, three years after René Maran's renowned Batoula , Suzane Lacascade, from Guadeloupe, published in Paris the novel Claire Solange, âme africaine by the publisher Eugène Figuière. She received the Montyon Prize from the French Academy, and can be considered a pioneer of Négritude. Drasta Hoüel published the collection of prose poems Les vies légères , in 1916, and the novel Cruautés et tendresses , in 1925. Since then, the number of female writers has continued to increase. However, except for some authors such as: Maryse Condé, Simone Schwarz-Bart and Michèle Lacroisil whose novels have been the subject of several critical studies, the woman writer from the French Caribbean seems to suffer certain marginalization and remains forgotten by critics, although her production , in the context of the French Caribbean Literature, is of quality. When dealing with the poetesses specifically, it is clear that the erasure is even greater. This article aims to highlight the poetic work of Florette Morand (1926-2019) from Guadalupe which, according to Naudillon (2002, p.69) is the one that most generated conflicts between the two most important criticisms dedicated to her.

Keywords: Literature. Literature. Francophone female poetry. Morand Florette. Guadeloupe.
