American Folklore Rutgers University Study Guide: “Zombies” 1998 1. Consider the case of Clairvius Narcisse. How had he angered the community and his own family? What social norms had he violated? 2. On April 30, 1962, Clairvius Narcisse was admitted to the Albert Schweitzer Hospital, an American-run institution in Deschapelles. What were his complaints at that time? 3. On May 2, 1962, Clairvius Narcisse was pronounced dead. What proof do we have of his death? 4. On May 3, 1962, Clairvius Narcisse was placed in a pine box coffin which was nailed shut and buried. Ten days later, a concrete slab was placed over the grave. Who apparently dug him up and revived him? What was the motive for reviving him? 5. What is said to happen to a person when his or her “ti bon ange” is removed from the body? Why is this fate said to be worse than death? 6. For how long did Clairvius Narcisse, along with 151 others, work as a slave in Haiti? What sorts of crops was he forced to work on?
