Abstract

The twentieth century has brought many changes threatening the cultural and linguistic survival of Cajuns and Creoles in Louisiana. A hallmark of the current ethnic renaissance in this region was the publication in 1980 of Cris sur le bayou: naissance d'une poésie acadienne en Louisiane, edited by Barry Jean Ancelet, the first published work of literature written in Cajun French. The following article is an analysis of the cultural and linguistic importance of Cris sur le bayou, focusing on the processes and consequences of cultural assimilation in Anglo-America represented in the poetry.
