#453: Margaret Papillon: Nikita comments
I saw Margaret's name listed in Alice Theard's recent volumes(l998) . I have
not read the entire four volumes. I am assuming sample of her works are
among the 117 Haitian women who are featured in the books because her name is
on the back cover of one the volumes.
I think mentionniong " LaMarginale" on this line for the first time had
generated comments from others who had read Papillon's books.
However, I am still wondering why she does not get reviews on the Haitian
papers. Why it took me to go to my local neighborhood library and randomly
picked up a book I saw on a shelf to find out about her.
She should talk with her distributor or publisher.
Or, Do you we only know about Haitians whom the "Blan" had already
recognized? Margaret is also a painter.
There are many eloquent Haitian writers like Margaret Papillon who have not
gotten the "Blan's blessing", who probably never will.
Many Haitians tend to have higher regard for something or someone that the
"Blan" had already acclaimed.
Keep up with the good work!
