Are Haitian Women Romantic? - A Poet's Perspective (Part 2)

Question #2: Do you believe that Haitian Women are romantic and, if there are, any weaknesses in them, what can be done to improve it?

We asked Haitian Writer and poet Josaphat-Robert Large 5 questions including this question... Read his answer...

Answer: Haitian women have got to be the most romantic ones in the world. As a writer, I can express that the main source of inspiration of Haitian poets and storytellers are the Haitian women.

For example, which one of us don't know about the beauty of Choucoune, this "Marabout" with "tete doubout" that has inspired the poet Oswald Durand.

How about Anaise, the "poto-mitan" woman in the novel Gouverneurs de la Rosée of Jacques Roumain.

When a Haitian woman falls for a man, she will do anything to conquer his love and have him for herself alone. She is so jealous that she becomes like a "Tigresse" (female tiger) eager to protect her territory.

That takes us to the next question about her sexuality.

Next Question...


Question #3: What do you find sexy about Haitian women and are you inspired by them?

I would say having a Haitian myself, any man should be aware that Haitian women can be romantic because they know how to serve a man right and respectfully at time, but do not have the best qualities when it come to basic social manners, behaving adult like, have fear of intimacy, and are very dismal parents.

They have very poor parenting skills.

Obviously, that has nothing to do with them being Haitian, but from stringent family upbringing.

Most of thr time us Haitian men don't know how to treat our Haitian women and take them for granted.

Brother man the are romantic Haitian women in the US. The problem is our Haitian nubian queens love to talk a lot and make big isssues out of little things.

Word of sugesstion just ignore.

Yes, but
As our world closes out, we must now ask ourselves what must be done to insure our survival as a people.

We must value our women, for heaven lies at the foot of mother.
