About Haitian Revolution (1791-1804)
(login or register to contribute to this metadata entry)

The Haitian Revolution took place in Haiti (or, the island of Saint Dominigue, as it was referred to prior to the revolution) between 1791-1804. Contemporary scholars have deemed this revolution as one of the largest successful slave revolts in modern history. It concluded with both the abolition of slavery in Haiti as well as the removal of colonial (French) rule.

Examination of the field reveals a wide array of genres, from letters to diaries and travelogues, but one fact is consistent: it is a body of literature grounded in empire and the imaginations of empire in the West Indies.
