Abstract

When it comes to Haiti, so much has been said; so much has been explored, dissected, and elaborated on, be it in the fields of fiction, nonfiction or poetry. Yet, there still remains a particular silence, a hole within every single one of these approaches – contemporary rural Haiti is rarely considered, if even considered at all. Given that at least ninety percent of the island is comprised of rural villagers, Ayiti Cherie, My Darling Haiti, a collection of literary nonfiction essays, brings stories from the Haitian countryside to the forefront and places them alongside current narratives on Haiti.
