Located in the Leeward Islands is the Caribbean island called Guadeloupe. The island stands in the Lesser Antilles and has a area of about 1,628 km2 with a number around 400,000 of inhabitants. The island is considered as an oversea region of France and it is an essential part of France. Guadeloupe encompasses other smaller sized islands such as Marie-Gallante, the Iles des Saintes and La Desirade.
The island known under the name of Guadeloupe is part of the Eurozone and the European Union as well. As a result the currency used currently on the island is the euro. Although the island is an oversea department of France, it is not yet included in the Schengen Area. The prefecture of the region is Basse-Terre and the official language spoken there is French. Nevertheless many of the people living there are able to speak Antillean Creole.
When talking about the Guadeloupe Island, many will fondly remember the literary achievements that island inhabitants portrayed over a long period of time. One of the most well-known such achievement is the poetry that Saint-John Perse wrote during his lifetime. Saint-John Perse was a pseudonym that Alexis Leger used for his creations. The biggest achievement of this great man was considered to be when he won the Nobel Prize in Literature back in 1960 for “the soaring flight and the evocative images of his poetry, which, in a visionary fashion, reflects the conditions of our time.”
The great minds that were found on such a secluded area has amazed many people but it’s literary output is even today recognised and continued by many journalist, essayists, poets and even novelists. Such names as Simone Schawartz-Bart, Mayse Conde and M. Ernest Pepin are only a few of the great talents that have risen from the shores of Guadeloupe.
Along with the various literary talents, the people of Guadeloupe are also well known for their dances and music. The combination of French, Indian and African styles have created some unique forms that are specific to the Guadeloupe region, such as the dance styles named zouk-love, zouk and kompa but also hip-hop and other modern dances.
