Abstract

Even before the ground had stopped shaking in Port-au-Prince on January 12, 2010, survivors and witnesses began turning their experiences into stories. Memoirs published by Haitian, American, and French authors in 2010 and 2011 show how wide a range of responses the catastrophe provoked, from meditations on the role of literature in coping with disaster to testimonies of Christian witness. A reading of these memoirs suggests interesting differences in the literary strategies of Francophone and Anglophone authors, and in those of male and female witness-writers.
