While rejecting a conception of literature as moral philosophy, or a device for imparting particular morals to the reader through exemplary characters and plots, Maryse Cond�e has displayed throughout her writing career a strong valorization of literature as ethical critique. This study examines her singular approach to literary commitment as a critical reworking of aesthetic models and modes of interpretation. Focusing on four dominant problematics in Cond�e's work--history and globalization in La Belle Cr�eole and Moi, Tituba sorci�ere ... noire de Salem, intertextuality and reception in La migrat.
