Haitian born neurologist, playwrighter, poet and novelist Jean Metellus
Jean Metellus is also a playwright and his first play Anacaona was performed at Thèâtre National de Chaillot in Paris by Antoine Vitez. Metellus believes that his caliber as a playwright cannot be and should not be compared to other playwrights simply because each one of them are different and unique. Because he advocates his people's memory, Metellus says, his plays are always politically engaged. He calls Anacaona as a political play which reflects the dispossession of Southern countries and methods that can be used to resume the history showing indebtedness to the Old World. Jean Metellus says that Anacaona is for teaching and is never a didactic play.
Jean Metellus has authored several plays, poetry, books and novels and all his books are always dedicated to his wife Anna-Marie.
