African poetry is unique in its complexity, both because of its linguistic diversity and the devastating impact of colonialism and slavery. From the traditional oral poets to the vast outpouring of writing generated throughout the Atlantic slave trade, beautifully lyrical and haunting works are reproduced here to create a wide picture of African culture. The collection includes a mix of poetry -humorous, celebratory, thoughtful and angry - and above all is a look at the history of Africa through the voices of those who lived through it.
