Open Gate - Haitian Book Centre - Haitian Books in Creole, English and French, francophone litterature - Cliquer pour agrandir The editors focus on contemporary Creole poetry that reflects the struggle for human rights in Haiti, which is divided into 3 sections: Pioneers of Modern Haitian Creole Poetry, beginning with the founder of modern Haitian Creole literature, Felix Morisseu-Leroy (1913 - 1998); the flowering of Haitian poetry as represented by the literary movement, “Society of Butterflies,” some of whose members were jailed or exiled by the bloody Duvalier dictatorship; and the New Generation, featuring primarily those poets in the Diaspora whose work has been published in the last 15 years.
