Book cover
The Haitian Peasantry through Oral and Written Literature
Roumain, Alexis, Endore, Carpentier and Fountain
Toni Pressley-Sanon
Book review:
"Toni Pressley-Sanons work gives us a much needed, necessary critical analysis as she joins Haitis rich oral literature to its lengthy written tradition. The countrys best writers have anchored their work in Afro-Haitian traditions, much as historians will need to mark the origin of Haitian history in west and central Africa, transcending the Caribbean context. Pressley-Sanon furthers our understanding of Haiti and Haitians in wondrous ways. She goes to the roots."
Patrick Bellegarde-Smith, Professor Emeritus, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
