Alejo Carpentier

SUMMARY

A few years after its liberation from French colonialist rule, Haiti experienced a period of unsurpassed brutality, horror, and superstition under the reign of the black King Henri-Christophe. Through the eyes of the ancient slave Ti-Noel, The Kingdom of This World records the destruction of the black regime--built on the same corruption and contempt for human life that brought down the French--in an orgy of voodoo, race hatred, erotomania, and fantastic grandeurs of false elegance.Alejo Carpentier is the author of 'The Kingdom of This World: A Novel', published 1989 under ISBN 9780374521974 and ISBN 0374521972.
