Hidden Meanings: Truth and Secret in Haiti's Creole Proverbs (Paperback)
Hidden Meanings: Truth and Secret in Haiti's Creole Proverbs is a collection of the colorful proverbs that characterize the country of Haiti and its people. The proverbs appear in the original Creole with accompanying translations. Whenever possible, literal rather than common translations are provided that the reader may hear the language as well as the proverbs. Also included are explanations of the proverbs' meanings. Featuring over 1200 entries, this is, to date, the most varied, complete, and accurate collection of Haitian proverbs, though one can never know all the wisdom of this people, for it grows with each new obstacle and generation born.
