Reviews

A fruitful intervention in a growing body of literature and increasingly lively debate on the Haitian Revolution and the figure of Toussaint Louverture, the book also contributes to the emerging scholarship on Cesaire, Francophone literature, and postcolonial theory.... Walsh reveals how these texts [by Louverture and Cesaire] are structured, how they function, and what dynamics they contain and what they have to show us about politics and history. Gary Wilder, CUNY Graduate Center


<p> Contains all the ingredients to become the next important book in the field of postcolonial studies with the emphasis on French Caribbean culture and literature. --Daniel Desormeaux, University of Chicago--Daniel Desormeaux, University of Chicago
