Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This is a must have for any poet. Brathwaite is masterful and this collection is stunningly brilliant and beautiful.
I had no idea who Kamau Brathwaite was before my freshman composition class! I must say, however, that he is definitely one of the best Caribbean writers I've read yet!
This is an wonderful collection of verse. I recomend it to any one looking for a connection between the African-American / African-Caribbean experience. My only suggestion is find the book Pathfinder: Black Awakening in the Arrivants to help you a long. This work has many allusions that may not be easy to understand to the average reader.
