Two Years in the French West Indies
Lafcadio Hearn (au); Raphael Confiant (fr). In Oct. 1887 the writer & translator Lafcadio Hearn sailed to Martinique, where he fell under the spell of the island & its people. He remained there for two years, immersed in Martinique’s vibrant culture & tropical beauty. The result was one of the most detailed & poetic accounts of day-to-day life in the Caribbean ever written. Hearn viewed French-ruled Martinique as an exotic fusion of European, African & Asian influences, the Creole society par excellence. He provides an invaluable picture of a Caribbean colony where slavery is a recent memory & race an all-important matter of identity. Hearn’s greatest achievement is his sympathetic insight into the daily lives of ordinary Martinicans, their folk tales, music & Creole language. First pub. in 1890. Illus.
