The essays gathered in Haiti's Literary Legacies unpack the theoretical, historical, and political resonance of the Haitian revolution across a multiplicity of European and American Romanticisms, and include discussion of Haitian, British, French, German, and U.S. American traditions. Often referred to as the only successful slave revolt in history, the revolution that forged Haiti at once fulfilled, challenged, and ultimately surpassed Enlightenment conceptions of freedom and universality in ways that became crucial to transnational Romanticism, yet scholars and historians of Romanticism are only beginning to take the measure of its impact. This collection works at the intersection of Romantic and Caribbean studies to move that project forward, showing the myriad ways that literatures of the Romantic period respond to-and are transformed by-the Revolution in Haiti. Demonstrating the Revolution's centrality to romantic writing, Haiti's Literary Legacies urges an enlarged understanding of Romanticism and of its implications for the political, historical, and ecological genealogies of the present.

"Haiti's Literary Legacies unpacks the theoretical, historical, and political resonance of the Haitian revolution across a multiplicity of European and American Romanticisms, including Haitian, British, French, and German traditions. Often referred to as the only successful slave uprising in history, the Haitian revolution at once fulfilled and surpassed Enlightenment conceptions of freedom and universality in ways that were crucial to global Romanticism, and yet these effects are only beginning to be studied by scholars and historians of Romanticism. This volume works at the intersection of Romantic and Caribbean studies to outline the myriad ways that the politicized literature of Romantic period engages the revolution in Haiti. Demonstrating the centrality of the Haitian revolution to the larger configuration of transnational Romantic writing, this collection articulates a literary legacy that speaks to our contemporary moment and our ongoing attempts to come to terms with the political, historical, and ecological genealogies of the present."--

Twelve years ago, a guy named Bush was president, the country was in the midst of turmoil in the Middle East, and, although the president enjoyed unprecedented support, seeds of opposition were beginning to spread. Some things are slow to change. Meanwhile, Boston was experiencing a harsh recession and Jamaica Plain (one of Boston's southern neighborhoods) became a low-rent mecca for aspiring artists, musicians, and writers. A blend of inspiration, naiveté, technology, and vision led a handful of these artists to found compost magazine. Their mission was to facilitate a better understanding of the world's people through art and literature by re-internationalizing poetry in the United States, by showcasing emerging and established artists in the Boston area and across the continent. Early issues featured translations from Russian, Bengali, and Bulgarian; sketches and artwork by inter-national and Boston-area artists; and poetry and interviews with Robert Pinsky, KRS-ONE, and Rosanna Warren. Each issue contained a feature on the poetry of a culture other than mass culture USA, a section called "Hear America Singing" that featured established and emerging writers from the U.S., and a section that presented Boston-area artists and writers. Much of the inspiration for compost's international slant came from the publisher James Laughlin and the translator Kenneth Rexroth. Laughlin was one of compost's earliest enthusiasts, as well as their most frequent contributor; and the magazine created a Memorial Translation Prize to honor Kenneth Rexroth. Greatest Hits contains a range of work from compost's twelve-year run, an overview of the magazine's conception and history from two of its editors, and a preface by Rosanna Warren. Kevin Gallagher and Margaret Bezucha are two of the founding editors of compost magazine.
