Emeric Bergeaud (1818–1858) was a Haitian novelist. His best-known work, Stella, was the first Haitian novel. Born in Cayes, he served as Secretary to and later participated in a revolt against President Soulouque. Exiled to Saint Thomas, it was there that he wrote the novel Stella. Marlene Daut has recently revealed in Tropics of Haiti: Race and the Literary History of the Haitian Revolution in the Atlantic World, 1789-1865, that three Haitian journalists and writers from the early twentieth-century, Ulrick Duvivier, Frédéric Marcelin, and Louis Morpeau, suspected or more likely erroneously believed that Stella was actually authored by Bergeaud's wife (413-14, ftn. 2). At the present time, there is no other known evidence that supports the claims of Duvivier, Marcelin, and Morpeau.
