The Penguin Book of Modern African Poetry

£14.99


“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.
