Truth and Secret in Haiti's Creole Proverbs
by Wally Turnbull
For those who love Haiti and students of language and culture.
Featuring over 1200 entries in Creole and English, this is, to date, the most varied and accurate collection of the colorful proverbs that characterize Haiti and her people. Translating a Creole proverb into English requires a fluency of not only both languages, but also of culture, an idiom more difficult to learn than any offered in a grammar book.
