Global neighbourhoods and plantations: the long nineteenth century between Toussaint L’Ouverture and the First World War

Though fallen thyself, never to rise again, Live, and take comfort. Thou hast

left behind Powers that will work for thee; air, earth, and skies; There’s not a

breathing of the common wind That will forget thee; thou hast great allies;

Thy friends are exultations, agonies, And love, and man’s unconquerable

mind.
