Product Description

This important new work on Kamau Brathwaite includes work on and inspired by the subject, recognizing the power and influence of his poetry and other creative work, historical research and cultural and literary criticism. Brathwaite is recognized as an institution in Caribbean culture and an inspiration for two generations of creative writers, cultural thinkers and historical scholars. In this spirit, this collection includes major new essays on Brathwaite's creative writing, new poetry and fiction by writers reflecting on his influential importance in their work, new historiographical research and commentary echoing his preoccupations and setting Brathwaite himself in this context, and three memoirs by major Caribbean figures close to him.

Also included is the fullest bibliography to date of Brathwaite's work and the increasing writing on it.

Contributors include: Opal Palmer Adisa, Mervyn Alleyne, Hilary Beckles, Erna Brodber, J. Edward Chamberlin, John Chioles, Richard Clarke, Rhonda Cobham, Maryse Condé, Isis Costa, J. Michael Dash, Joan Dayan, Roberto Fernández Retamar, Honor Ford-Smith, Lorna Goodison, Patricia Penn Hilden, Cynthia James, Linton Kwesi Johnson, John La Rose, Enrique Lima, Mark McWatt, Pamela Mordecai, Mary Morgan, Mervyn Morris, Rex Nettleford, Ngugi wa Thiong'o, Marlene Nourbese Philip, Velma Pollard, Ras Akyem Ramsay, Timothy Reiss, Gordon Rohlehr, Elaine Savory, Olive Senior, Omowale Stewart, and SilvioTorres-Saillant.
