Description
Throughout the century some of the most startlingly original poetry in the world has come from Africa. This new and substantially expanded edition, containing the poetry of ninety-nine poets (thirty-one of them in print for the first time) from twenty-seven countries, displays the wide-ranging forms or African verse: from war songs and political protests to poems about human love, African nature, and the surprises and ironies of modern life. Featuring modern masters of African poetry -- such as L. S. Senghor, Augustinho Neto, Tchicaya U Tam'si, Okot p'Bitek, and Christopher Okigbo -- the volume also includes poets who are still at the beginning of their development. These rich and colorful pages demonstrate a passion, spontaneity, and sensuousness uncommon in most contemporary poetry.
