  • Just as Allen Ginsberg is the child of Whitman and Blake, so Brathewaite is the child of Cummings and Achebe.I appreciate the Cummings like grammatical liberties, and Brathewaite has written some rather genius lines You re nothing You came from nobody Third class servant class got no class underclass , but I, having read so much American poetry, can only read about the jazz greats and civil rights and Mother Africa so many times before I get bored Sorry.


  • This book of poetry shows the author s thoughts on social matters in the West Indies from the 1960s to 1980s The material is sometimes personal, but many times it is an overview of the prevailing conditions in the countries, especially in Jamaica.
