Sucre et café, entre enfer et paradis : les images contrastées du jardin cubain au milieu du XIXe siècle

Abstract : At the turn of the century, literary Cuban plantations offer very contrastive representations : due to the fact of quick economical mutations, the image of Eden collides with that of an over exploited and dehumanized garden. Its economical decline gives a more positive value to the coffee plantations, representing a counterpoint to the ingenia Iconography's resolutely modern vocation inverts literary tendency by turning itself towards sugar an ignoring coffee. In spite of its limits and its ideological settled prejudices, it's finally through the iconographie image that can be measured the island's irreversible topple into the industrial era.
