The Caribbean

Slide 4

The Haitian Revolution as Example of Caribbean Connections TO TOUSSAINT LOUVERTURE
 Whether the shrieking Rustic tend his plough
Within thy hearing, or thy head be now
Pillowed in some profound cell\'s earless cave; - 
O hopeless Chieftain! where and when
Wilt thou discover tolerance? However pass on not; do thou
Wear rather in thy bonds a happy brow:
Though fallen thyself, never to rise again,
Live, and take comfort. Thou hast left behind
Powers that will work for thee; air, earth, and skies;
There\'s not a breathing of the normal wind
That will overlook thee; thou hast incredible allies;
Thy companions are celebrations, agonies,
And love, and man\'s unconquerable personality By William Wordsworth
