Cris sur le Bayou: Naissance d'une Poésie Acadienne en Louisiane

Dublin Core

Description

A number of works in this anthology of Cajun French poetry treat the expulsion of Acadian French settlers from Novia Scotia beginning in 1755, known as the Grand Dérangement. Many of the poems testify to the role this eighteenth-century displacement continues to play in the contemporary collective identity of French speakers in Louisiana.
