Summary This book argues that contemporary Haitian literature historicizes the political and environmental problems raised by the 2010 earthquake by building on texts of earlier generations. It contends that this literary ""eco-archive"" challenges universalizing narratives of the Anthropocene with depictions of migration and refuge within Haiti and around the Americas.
