Antoine Archange Raphael
Big Ninny's Home
This book is a dramatization of "The Haitian Drama". It discribes the anatomy of a love affair between two people motivated by different philosophies of life.There is also a French version entitled, "Le Drame Haitien".
Antoine’s story, « Big Ninny’s home, the confrontation », puts emphasis on requited love and its positive consequences
Actually, love counts among the persistent topics treated by generations of writers, throughout ages, through their literary works.
When love is one-sided, it leads the loving person to despair and many other unhappy situations. Indeed, with respect to someone who is turned away, rejected or betrayed, life stops smiling and doesn’t worth a candle.
However, requited love makes possible the communion of two hearts beating in unison.
In both cases, love betrays intense feelings.
In the case of shared love, it becomes an attachment reinforced by tenderness, physical and spiritual attraction between two people.
It responds well to the idea of give and take, a normal reaction we find among well-balanced people.
From such premise, the author thinks that love implications are numerous; thus, in this story, the author has decided to put emphasis of requited love. His task turns plausible, as different aspects of his choice abound in « Big Ninny’s home, the confrontation”, a novel published by www.lulu.com.
A French version, entitled « La maison de Nini, la confrontation » may be purchased from the same editor and his associates.
He finally succeeded in forgetting that portion of our history (almost completely devoid of happy moments), so much so that he was taking delight in being conscious of the roughness of the tree bark against his skin.
It was, spontaneously, a way for him to experience his existence in a world where the omnipresent irrationality gave him the impression of immersing himself in a frightful dream, in a gaseous universe with no tangibility
“Is it an everlasting nightmare?” he wondered. “If it’s one, then creation wouldn’t have any purpose.
“We shouldn’t be given consciousness, intelligence, a sense of right and wrong; so we wouldn’t witness and fall victims of this bad dream, to start with.”
He was also a bit elated for keeping his sanity, watchfulness, lucidity, instead of letting himself absorbed by a depressing life routine that kept on moving in a vicious circle.
Occasionally, he pinched himself hard.
He intended to experience this author’s feeling according to which one who has never suffered has never been alive.
“Except that sufferings spread throughout this world,” he whispered. “Too many people display an irresistible intention to make others miserable.
“The media pours out human tragedies everywhere into our living rooms, our bedrooms, in our cars, reporting wars, genocides, ethnic cleansing, and remote-controlled assassination.
“Therefore, sufferings, although they are not absolute in nature, turn ubiquitous in the bosom of human society.
“This situation is so sad and hopeless. Supposedly, human nature should pas as the best invention Mother Nature could think of, in the course of her evolution, since it could use reason to temper brutality being seemingly part of a wholesale project of existence.
“Unfortunately, our common mother has made a mistake in her expectations.
“Her hope seems to turn into an ordeal.”
