Ti Jean and His Brothers
About Ti Jean and His Brothers
Never try to beat the devil at his own game. In this poetic fable from Nobel Prize–winning Caribbean playwright Derek Walcott, three brothers attempt to vex the devil—strong Gros Jean, scholarly Mi Jean, and youthful Ti Jean. Only one can triumph over injustice and free the world from this evil. Drawing upon myths, magic, and mask work, "Ti Jean and His Brothers" is a powerful exploration of the legacy of enslavement and colonialism.
