The Haitian Revolution (1791–1804) reshaped the debates approximately slavery and freedom through the Atlantic international, sped up the abolitionist stream, brought on rebellions in neighboring territories, and intensified either repression and antislavery sentiment. the tale of the delivery of the world’s first self sustaining black republic has seeing that held an iconic fascination for a various array of writers, artists, and intellectuals in the course of the Atlantic diaspora. analyzing twentieth-century responses to the Haitian Revolution, Philip Kaisary bargains a profound new examining of the illustration of the Revolution via radicals and conservatives alike in basic texts that span English, French, and Spanish languages and that come with poetry, drama, historical past, biography, fiction, and opera. In a complementary specialise in canonical works via objectiveé Césaire, C. L. R. James, Edouard Glissant, and Alejo Carpentier as well as the paintings of René Depestre, Langston Hughes, and Madison Smartt Bell, Kaisary argues that the Haitian Revolution generated a permanent cultural and ideological inheritance. He addresses severe understandings and fictional reinventions of the Revolution and thinks via how, and to what impact, authors of significant diasporic texts have metamorphosed and appropriated this incredible nook of black progressive background.
