On January 12, 2010, an earthquake broke apart the city of Port au Prince and stretches of the Haitian landscape, killing almost 300,000 and leaving 1.2 million people homeless. Collecting the work of more than 30 Haitian poets, this anthology offers a complex and sophisticated range of responses to the tragedyâpoems about the rupture of love, the shock of a sudden catastrophe, the hunger for more beauty in the world, the shattering of landscapes, and ultimately, explorations of the incomprehensible nature of our mortality. Presenting French and Haitian Creole poems alongside their English translations, this trilingual work seeks to make sense of the natural disaster and its aftermath.
