Selected Poems of Jay Wright

$25.00
| /
Jay Wright, an eclectic poet attentive to the black traditions binding the Americas to West Africa, is also profoundly influenced by Latin American cultures. Drawing on the history of his childhood home in New Mexico, he has other models as various as Dante's Commedia, Marcel Griaule and his team of French anthropologists, Suzanne Langer, J.B. Danquah's Akan Doctrine of God, and American jazz discourses. This selection of Wright's work starting with the publication of his first full-length book The Homecoming Singer in 1971 represents the range and power of his mythopoetic imagination and his concern for the fate of culture.
