    Abstract

    This paper argues that an assessment of the influence of the Haitian Revolution (1791-1804) in the Atlantic world requires that we go beyond customary references to fear and terror. Part of that endeavor entails understanding the transmission and nature of knowledge about the Haitian Revolution as it unfolded. Here I analyze the information about Haiti entering Cuba , which itself was making the transition to a sugar and slave-based economy similar to prerevolutionary Haiti. An analysis of Haitian news in Cuba reveals that residents of the latter island received ample and detailed information on the events of the Revolution. Alongside the richness of the news in circulation, however, we see the rapid emergence and consolidation of the binary, apocalyptic images that would become the prevailing symbols of Haiti and its revolution in Cuba.
