In Ti-Jean and his bothers, the Bolom is the troubled spirit of an unborn child or aborted fetus. Since this play is an allegory, the Bolom represents the generations of black West Indians who were born into slavery. They were oppressed by the colonial planters and were therefore denied the rights, privileges and opportunities of free men. They were denied the opportunity to have a real life

The dictionary is CORRECT. All of you are describing a DWEN. A DWEN is a child who died before being christened.
