About This Site

Earthquake Aid

Welcome to the IAH 202 website at Michigan State University for the Alejo Carpentier's novel The Kingdom of this World, set in Haiti around the time of the Revolution.

The Flag of Haiti

This site was created with the help of student submissions for the definitions you will find listed under the categories on the left and at the bottom of the page.
The lists of definitions you will find in the glossaries for each of the four parts of the book is not complete and exhaustive, but does cover a wide, and growing, selection of topics.

Henri Christophe

Most of the major characters, events, and places are to be found here. In all cases there are links to the original sources, plus links to further maps and pictures.
