A story of the outbreak of the Negro insurrection in Martinique in 1848, an idyl closing in blood and horror. Youma is a devoted slave, who clings to her white charge rather than to her Negro lover. Lafcadio Hearn was one of the original American expatriates to move to Japan; after living in New Orleans for some years, writing stories, he moved on to Tokyo, where he married a Japanese woman and changed his name. Hearn is best known for his supernatural tales.
