Monsieur Toussaint: A Play by Edouard Glissant



Edouard Glissant's Monsieur Toussaint tells the tragic story of Toussaint Louverture, the charismatic leader of the revolution - the only successful slave revolt in history - that led to Haiti's independence two-hundred years ago. Translated by the author himself in collaboration with J. Michael Dash, this new edition captures the striking essence of the original French play (first published in 1961).
