Reinterpreting the Haitian Revolution and its Cultural Aftershocks
Reinterpreting the Haitian Revolution and its Cultural Aftershocks, edited by Martin Munro and Elizabeth Walcott-Hackshaw. Jamaica, Barbados, and Trinidad and Tobago: University of the West Indies Press, 2006.
Haiti, its history, and its culture remain largely unknown or misunderstood in the Anglophone world. Framed by two essays by René Depestre, the essays in this volume seek to elucidate diverse aspects of Haiti’s history and culture and range from analyses of literary works to a discussion of representations of Toussaint Louverture and a historical study of the role of Saint Domingue refugees in the genesis of jazz. The book will be of particular interest to students and scholars working in Francophone Postcolonial Studies, Caribbean Studies, and African American Studies.
