Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A new edition of the definitive collection of modern poetry from Africa

"Poetry, always foremost of the arts in traditional Africa," writes Gerald Moore, "has continued to compete for primacy against the newer forms of prose fiction and theatre drama." Now revised and expanded, this comprehensive anthology features the work of ninety-nine poets from twenty- seven countries; thirty-one of the poets appear here for the first time. War songs, satires, and political protests jostle with poems about love, nature, and the surprises of life, offering a rich and wide-ranging body of creative work.

About the Author

Ulli Beier has been the director of art and research centers in Nigeria and Papua New Guinea and at the University of Bayreuth in Bavaria.

Gerald Moore is one of the foremost scholars of contemporary African anglophone poetry. He has taught at universities in various parts of Africa and in Hong Kong.
