Haitian Revolutionary Fictions

Launched in spring 2015, the Haitian Revolutionary Fictions website is a digital bibliography designed to act as a crossroads for literary fictions of the Haitian Revolution. By fictions, I mean texts that were composed as novels, short stories, novellas, short fictional sketches, poetry, and/or plays. When I was researching for my  book, Tropics of Haiti: Race and the Literary History of the Haitian Revolution in the Atlantic World, 1789-1865, I uncovered hundreds of such texts that had been published in the Atlantic World in the French, English, Portuguese, Haitian Creole, and German languages. My aim with this website was to continue the work that I began in Tropics of Haiti (which deals for the most part with works from nineteenth-century England, France, the United States, Germany, and Haiti) by publishing the first anthology of Haitian revolutionary fictions.
