Mr. Clarinet by British writer Nick Stone and Zombi Blues by French Canadian Stanley Péan both immerse the reader in Haiti’s tragical history forcing us to acknowledge the terrible traumas caused by dictatorships’ atrocities, and interrogate rationality. These works owe their unique nature to the re-configuration of their societies by both writers and the ways in which they portray the predetermined course of events of their people. A comparative analysis of the two novels will demonstrate how, despite their many differences, these writers explore the Haitian history through a common lens: an imaginary universe in which irrationality predominates mixing witchcraft and religious beliefs.
