This collection of deeply felt and powerfully moving Haitian poetry dating back to the first decades of the Caribbean island's independence from French colonial rule sheds a much needed light on an important and often neglected period in Haiti's literary history. Editors Kadish and Jenson have made a significant corpus of largely unknown poetry accessible to a wide audience for the first time with this essential bilingual volume of early-nineteenth-century verse that celebrates the authors' African origins, freedom from oppression, equality for all, and the legitimacy of the only modern country born from a slave revolt.
