Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the founding fathers of multi-cultural studies, Ishmael Reed first came to the attention of the literary world as a poet, and despite success as a novelist, playwright, essayist, and recording artist, has never ceased to be a poet. He delves into spiritual and political waters with his own unexpected and uniquely powerful voice.

New and Collected Poems, 1966-2006 captures four decades of Reed's inimitable verse, a visionary journey from Chattanooga to New York, from Africa to Oakland. In language that is pointed, innovative, and profound, Reed weaves politics and war with Yoruba and Jazz, and takes on American culture, from prejudice to Pepsi to George W. Bush.

In this important and long-awaited volume, one of America's most esteemed and intrepid poets, whose Beware Do Not Read This Poem has been cited by Gale Research as one of about 20 poems most frequently studied in literature courses, shows why he has helped define our cultural forefront from the '60s to today.

Synopsis:

First poetry collection in nearly twenty years. In language that is pointed, innovative and profoundly optimistic, Reed weaves politics and war with Nigerian poetry and jazz all in the service of his continual redefinition of American culture.
