Haitian Poetry Reading: Oswald Durand

Poetry reading inside my home library:

In this brief conversation, I share about my future book project, which I tentatively entitle ” God in Haitian Literary Imagination.” I also read two poems (“La Mort de Nos Cocotiers,” and “Les Fils du Noir”) written by the renowned Haitian poet, Oswald Durand (September 17, 1840-April 23, 1906); arguably, Durand was Haiti’s most important poet in the nineteenth century.

Bonne écoute!
