Beschreibung:

The Haitian Revolution (1791-1804) reshaped the debates about slavery and freedom throughout the Atlantic world, accelerated the abolitionist movement, precipitated
rebellions in neighboring territories, and intensified both repression and antislavery
sentiment. The story of the birth of the world's first independent black republic has
since held an iconic fascination for a diverse array of writers, artists, and intellectuals
throughout the Atlantic diaspora. Examining twentieth-century responses to the Haitian
Revolution, Philip Kaisary offers a profound new reading of the representation of the Revolution
by radicals and conservatives alike in primary texts that span English, French, and Spanish
languages and that include poetry, drama, history, biography, fiction, and opera.
