New due date: 10/31.
How does The Kingdom of This World construct the Haitian Revolution as a significant historical event? Based on Carpentier’s use of specific formal techniques and choice of plot events, what do you think this event means? Select passages from the novel and analyze them. Research the history of the Haitian Revolution. Use keywords introduced by Kusch and in class (ex. storyworld, magical realism, etc.). Reference images of the Haitian Revolution. You should formulate a clear thesis and back it up using the appropriate evidence. Be sure to follow the paper guidelines: https://analepsis.org/paper-rubric/
