Masters of the Dew
Jacques Roumain, trans. Langston Hughes & Mercer Cook
Book excerpt:
"His face, drenched with sweat, hardened, for what he saw was a grilled expanse of dirty rusty color spotted by a scattering of moldy huts. He stared at the barren hill overlooking the village, ravaged by wide whitish gullies where erosion had bared its flanks to the rock. He tried to remember the tall oaks once animated with wood pigeons fond of blackberries, the mahogany trees bathed in shadowy light, the Congo beans whose dry husks rattled in the wind, the long rows of sweet potato hills. But all that, the sun had licked up, effaced with a single stroke of its fiery tongue."
