Summary
  • "In the history plays that compose The Haitian Trilogy - Henri Christophe, Drums and Colours, and The Haitian Earth - Derek Walcott uses verse to tell the story of his native West Indies as a four-hundred-year cycle of war, conquest and rebellion."--Jacket
  • This book includes three plays, written in verse, covering the history of the author's native West Indies as a four-hundred-year cycle of war, conquest, and rebellion. 'Henri Christophe' and 'The Haitian Earth' treat the legacy of Haiti's violent revolutionaries, under the leadership of Toussaint L'Ouverture, Jean Jacques Dessalines, and Henri Christophe, whose rebellion established the first black state in the Americas, but whose cruelty here becomes a parable of racial pride and corruption. 'Drums and Colours, ' commissioned in 1958 to celebrate the establishment of the first West Indian Federation, is a grand pageant linking the lives of complex, ambiguous heroes: Columbus and Raleigh, Toussaint, and George William Gordon, a martyr of the constitutional era
