abstract

This article examines the dual themes of vodou and mysticism in the novel Les arbres musiciens (1957) by Jacques Stéphen Alexis (1922-1961). If Compère Général Soleil (1955), his first novel, barely touches the question, it is his second novel, Les arbres musiciens, that develops this aspect. This one testifies to an excellent knowledge of Haitian vodou and its origins. The article thus shows the relationship that Jacques Stéphen Alexis has in his poetics with ancient Egypt, in particular, and Africa in general.
