    • Abstract:
      The article discusses the writing of the Haitian earthquake on January 12, 2010 and creating the archives. It explores how the process of rewriting, one of the foundational pillars of Caribbean literature, is linked with archivisation through which essays and chronicles on the earthquake try to preserve what remains. It also suggests that silences and gaps in the colonial archive are increasingly being challenged and filled in by the emergence of new post-colonial archival-type writing.
