About this product
- DescriptionSince the United States purchase of Louisiana in 1803, the French inhabitants of the state have tried to preserve the language of their forefathers. Though they remain patriotic to their country, their pride in their French origin and their status as Creoles is equally apparent. Drawing on the works of Alcee and Edward Fortier, Ruby Van Allen Caulfeild has created a detailed and careful study of the Creoles literary efforts to maintain their rich heritage. Here, the author has compiled information that spans the entire history of French writers in Louisiana, from the earliest accounts of voyages, to the later vels, dramas, and short stories.
