“Wrapped in Chains”

Montreal blogger Mercedes Sharpe Zayas wrote an excellent essay about the l’Acadie fence on the website, Petite Mort. The post, titled “Wrapped in Chains,” recounts both the history of the fence and the community that erected it. She also discusses what, if anything, the fence represents. Again, I am amazed that a decades-old “feeble relic,” as Zayas aptly describes it, retains the power to invoke discussion.
