ABSTRACT
A literary critique is presented for the 1936 Latin American novel "Cañas y bueyes," by Francisco Eugenio Moscoso Puello, examining its engagement with the concepts of the "historicity of emotions" and the depiction of Haitians within early 20th-century Dominican popular imagination. Historical context is given describing relations between the Dominican Republic and Haiti at the time of the novel. Further discussion is given regarding the mutual hostility of both to the United States.
