From Answer to Question

Some questions that may have preceded Dillon’s essay:

1. Why does the novel give little importance to the events of the Haitian revolution and intersperse short snippets of the horrors into the more emphasized daily gossip and scandal of the colonial society?

2. Why was the novel ignored for such a long period of time?

3. Does the novel fit Cathy Davidson’s critical model- novel as metonym for national conflict?

4. What other model might replace it?

5. What is the meaning behind the military diction in the novel?
