Essay Requirements:   Applicants must write a 500 words typed essay, double-spaced, standard margins, in English, French, or Haitian Creole. Essay Topic: Masters of the Dew, by Jacques Roumain Jacques Roumain's understanding of the Indigenous movement is said to have been "quite outstanding." His work, Masters of the Dew, reflects his constant efforts to connect art with reality. The plot of the novel, which deals with the Haitian peasantry, shows his need to see the peasant as an authentic, complex being, experiencing the same type of human struggle that most people endure throughout life. Roumain was troubled by the work of other Indigenous writers, who he felt romanticized and idealized peasant culture. He was particularly concerned with the abstract way other authors in the Indigenous movement portrayed peasant life. Essay Question: How does the novel, Masters of the Dew, reflect Roumain's strive towards creating a story that fits within the Indigenous movement without falling into the patterns that the author viewed as flawed?
