The Haitian Peasantry through Oral and Written Literature
Roumain, Alexis, Endore, Carpentier and Fountain
Toni Pressley-Sanon
Book details:
The Haitian peasant has always been the backbone of the Haitian economy and a source of inspiration for writers. Their vital oral tradition informs the literature of and about Haiti, and the peasantry and folk traditions are valorized in the classic and contemporary works discussed in this text.
The Haitian Peasantry in Oral and Written Literature is an ideal introduction to Haitian literature and an excellent companion to reading and study of Roumains Gouverneurs de la rose, Alexiss Compre gnral soleil, Endores Babouk, Carpentiers The Kingdom of This World, and Fountains contemporary story, Bouki and the Cocaine.
