Jacques Stephen Alexis, Jacques Roumain, Ren Depestre, Marie Chauvet, Frank tienne, J. J. Dominique, Jean M tellus, Dany Laferri re, Yanick Lahens, Lyonel Trouillot et Edwidge Danticat sont quelques-uns des crivains ha tiens dont l' criture est marqu e par le contexte politique d'Ha ti. Les r gimes dictatoriaux ont, en effet, affect l'espace cr atif, imposant un certain nombre de contraintes auxquelles ces crivains, chacun leur mani re, ont ing nieusement ripost et r agi. Ce recueil d'essais critiques et d'entretiens tente d'illustrer et d'analyser comment les oeuvres romanesques, po tiques et th trales s'accommodent du pays assi g et d ploient des strat gies linguistiques et formelles permettant de transcender les forces d'oppression. Jacques Stephen Alexis, Jacques Roumain, Ren Depestre, Marie Chauvet, Frank tienne, J. J. Dominique, Jean M tellus, Dany Laferri re, Yanick Lahens, Lyonel Trouillot and Edwidge Danticat are some of the Haitian writers whose writing is marked by Haiti's political history. Successive dictatorships have indeed shaped Haiti's creative space, imposing constraints that the authors ingeniously counteract and against which they all react. This collection of essays and interviews illustrates and analyzes the various ways in which the fictional, poetic and theatrical texts transcend the forces of oppression through linguistic and formal strategies.
