X-Self is the final part of a trilogy by the celebrated West Indian poet, Edward Kamau Brathwaite. The trilogy is in the widest sense autobiographical. In 'Mother Poem', the poet described the female-dominated background to his childhood in Barbados. In 'Sun Poem', he explained the male culture and tradition. Now, in X-Self , he weaves together the strands of history and heredity - from Africa, from Europe - that contributed to his own past/present self.
