Product Description

Comes the Voyager At Last is a tale told in poetry and prose. It is a haunting tale of slaver, the forced journey of the African tot he New World and his subsequent return tot he native land. Like Awoonor's first novel This Earth my Brother, Comes the Voyager At Last is a work of mythic and consciousness, and affirmation of the life forces of love and humanity in the face of the devastating forces of destruction characterized here in the historical racism that oppressed and continues to oppress black people both on the continent and in the diaspora. The mythic journey of the protagonist ends on the African soil, in the miracle of love, in the affirmation of the black man's ultimate and enduring humanity.
