Peopled with some of the most authentically drawn characterizations But his voice in these long and short poems and sequences selected from each of his many books, which began appearing in the mids, is crystal clear, accessible and serious, mixing a timeless myth-making energy with a strong contemporary conscience Dawes is at home with cityscape and seascape, patois and transatlantic tradition.
He writes poetry as it ought to be written. Born in Ghana, raised in Jamaica, and educated in Canada, Kwame Dawes is a dynamic and electrifying poet. In this generous collection, new poems appear with the best work from fifteen previous volumes. Deeply nuanced in exploring the human condition, Dawes' poems are filled with complex emotion and consistently remind us what it means to be a global citizen. Fingers can be trained to make shapes that, pressed just right on the gleaming keys, will make a sound that can stay tears or cause them to flow for days.
Anyone can learn to make some music, but not all have the heart to beat out the tunes that will turn us inside out. Kwame Dawes is the author of fifteen collections of poetry, two novels, four anthologies, and numerous essays and plays. Since he has taught at the University of Nebraska, and lives in Lincoln, Nebraska.
