Creoles and Cajuns

French Louisiana - La Louisiane Française

Wolfgang Binder

The French presence in Louisiana, its history, literature and language date back into the 17th century. Seventeen leading scholars from the USA, France, Germany, and Austria analyze aspects of the French heritage in this part of the New World. Both white and black Creole and Cajun cultures, their literatures and their ongoing influence are dealt with in this interdisciplinary publication.
