Professor Kaneesha Parsard will concentrate her introduction on the two sections, “The Tale of Demarara” and “Demarara’s Condition” – the attached excerpt includes the further section, “Transliteration for Chauntal Singers” and the Translator’s Note as we thought these would also be interesting/useful
