Le créole haïtien ‒ langue à la lumière de la théorie de Claire Lefèbvre (1998), qui a pris naissance entre les années 1680 et 1740 grâce à des locuteurs appartenant depuis leur origine africaine au groupe linguistique du Niger-Congo, principalement des langues Kwa ‒ est à côté du français l’un des moyens d’expression de la littérature haïtienne.

Despite difficulties in the first decade of the 21st century, Haiti is slowly returning to normal.
