Résumé
This article is a comparative reading of Ortiz’s Los negros brujos published in 1906 and Price-Mars’s Ainsi parla l’oncle published in 1929. This reading goes back to the beginning of the 20th century and also takes into account more recent Santeria and Vodou scholarship in an effort to determine if these religions are still cooking (Palmie) now that anthropology has happened.
