Description

Goodison's is an original voice in contemporary poetry, drawing on both African and European inheritances and reminding us that African heritages in the New World are not exclusively those of Americans, and that their Caribbean expression is a significantly different and relatively little known part of the African American experience. Her finely crafted poems often carry a sense of language's healing power in the face of the pain of the past.show more

Review quote

"Goodison advances from strength to strength. Her sixth collection finds her focusing the diamond lens of her incantatory verse on the culture and people of her homeland in the Caribbean and gives us a book full of pieces well worthy of anthologizing... Taken altogether, these poems reinforce each other's many strengths and constitute a long song of struggle and survival, of inhumanity and human love." -- Booklistshow more
