Island Beneath the Sea

Born a slave on the island of Saint-Domingue, Zarit -- known as Tt -- is the daughter of an African mother she never knew and one of the white sailors who brought her into bondage. Though her childhood is one of brutality and fear, Tt finds solace in the traditional rhythms of African drums and in the voodoo loas she discovers through her fellow slaves. When twenty-year-old Toulouse Valmorain arrives on the island in 1770, its with powdered wigs in his baggage and dreams of financial success in his mind. But running his fathers plantation, Saint-Lazare, is neither glamorous nor easy. It will be eight years before he brings home a bride -- but marriage, too, proves more difficult than he imagined. And Valmorain remains dependent on the services of his teenaged slave. Spanning four decades, Island Beneath the Sea is the moving story of the intertwined lives of Tt and Valmorain, and of one womans determination to find love amid loss, to offer humanity though her own has been battered, and to forge her own identity in the cruellest of circumstances.Translated from the Spanish by Margaret Sayers Peden....

    الحُرية مع الالَم اكرمَ للأنسان مَن العُبودية مع الَسَعادة

    والذي يحَرمَ رجَلًا آخَر من حُريته هو سجَين الكراهيَة والتحيز َو ضِيق الأفُق

    An ambitious saga of personal lives and aspirations amid the violent transition of Haiti from a French colony founded on slavery into an independent republic at the turn of the 18th century. We are immersed in the story of the slave Zarité on a sugar plantation and how she learns to survive under its young aristocratic master Valmorain, who rapes her at 13 and fathers children by her. She eventually gains his respect and some independent agency as a caretaker of his white son. When the time of t ...more

    I've loved Isabel Allende since college. According to the New York Times, they had to create a whole new genre of fiction for her, "magical feminism," because magical realism was all male. This book, however, does not have that magical quality that her earlier writing has. It reads more like a newspaper account of the life of a slave as she moves from pre-revolutionary Haiti through the revolution and on to New Orleans with her master after he loses his plantation on Haiti.

    It's important stuff t

    الجزيرة تحت البحر لإيزابيل الليندي هي الدليل والبرهان لإجادة المرأة للسرد الملحمي وحجة دامغة في وجه من ينفي الإبداع عن المرأة

    يمكننا النظر إلى الماضي ورواية أحداث الأيام التي عشناها معا، وحساب الأحزان والأفراح؛ هكذا يُصنَع الحب، دون تسرُّع، ويوما فيوما.

    لو حذفنا آخر ٤٠ صفحة من الرواية كنت قيمتها بـ ٤ نجوم، لكن كالعادة تأتي حصاة صغيرة فتهد الجبل. ففضلت تركها بدون تقييم.

    معرفش أنهو شيطان بيسيطر على الروائيين فيخرّبوا أعمالهم الجميلة بإيديهم في نهايتها! وكان لزومه إية إضافة زنا المحارم للرواية! يعني لازم العمل الجميل دا نلطخه بشيء بشع وقذر زي دا؟ خسارة فعلا.

    Es la historia de la esclava Zarité.

    Pudo ser muy bueno, pero no me gustó la forma de escribir de Allende en este libro.
