"Experience is the cane of the blind." -- Jacques Roumain
Jacques Roumain (June 4, 1907 — August 18, 1944) was a revered Haitian writer, politician, and advocate of Communism in Haiti. Roumain, considered one of the most prominent faces in Haitian literature, was regarded by many as a master novelist. Although poorly known in the English-speaking world, Roumain has significant following in Europe, and is renowned in the Caribbean and Latin America. The great African-American poet, Langston Hughes, translated some of Roumain's greatest works, including Gouverneurs de la Rosée (Masters of the Dew). Although his life was short, Roumain managed to touch many aspects of Haitian life and culture.
