Elegguas--a play on "elegy" and "Eleggua," the Yoruba deity of the threshold, doorway, and crossroad--is a collection of poems for the departed. Modernist and postmodernist in inspiration, Elegguas draws together traditions of speaking with the dead, from Rilke's Duino Elegies to the Jamaican kumina practice of bringing down spirits of the dead to briefly inhabit the bodies of the faithful, so that the ancestors may provide spiritual assistance and advice to those here on earth.

Here in a single volume is Kamau Brathwaite's long unavailable, landmark trilogy - Mother Poem, Sun Poem, and X/Self (1977, 1982, and 1987) - now completely revised and expanded by the author." "With its "Video Sycorax" typographic inventions and linguistic play, Ancestors liberates both the language and the new-Caliban vision of the poet. In its fresh and more experimental form the trilogy embodies the recapture (what the poet has called the "intercovery") of Brathwaite's African/Caribbean ancestry as a possession of power and renewal, even as it plumbs the deep tonalities of enslavement, oppression, and colonial dispossession."--Jacket+-+13996766352887ocn014692195book19870.77Brathwaite, KamauX/selfPoetry28217ocn008094578book19700.82Brathwaite, KamauThe folk culture of the slaves in JamaicaHistoryFolklore24314ocn013125328book19840.77Brathwaite, KamauHistory of the voice : the development of nation language in Anglophone Caribbean poetryCriticism, interpretation, etcBibliography+-+40069765453241903ocn077573854book20070.70Brathwaite, KamauDS (2) : dreamstoriesPoetry+-+98416766351858ocn000117946book19690.70Bold, Alan NormanAlan Bold, Edward Brathwaite, Edwin Morgan1784ocn173264035book20070.87Paul, AnnieCaribbean culture : soundings on Kamau BrathwaiteHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcConference proceedings+-+55065911243412ocn053896606book20040.80Pollard, Charles WNew World modernisms : T.S.

In exploring common links as well as differences between Brathwaite and Walcott, and looking at their engagement with the mythology of the Caribbean's African experience, the author of this study identifies their contribution to the development of modern Caribbean poetics. Making a contribution to several areas of historical and literary scholarship, the author identifies a specifically Caribbean tradition out of which the poets have emerged+-+04408901352133ocn054374584book20040.77Williams, Emily AllenThe critical response to Kamau BrathwaiteCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+62042402751612ocn034189865book19950.85The Art of Kamau BrathwaiteCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+17456690361412ocn046952390book20010.92For the geography of a soul : emerging perspectives on Kamau BrathwaiteCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+7054890135932ocn041977361book19990.89Williams, Emily AllenPoetic negotiation of identity in the works of Brathwaite, Harris, Senior, and Dabydeen : tropical paradise lost and regainedCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+2684298225932ocn037560752book19880.94Brathwaite, Doris MonicaA descriptive and chronological bibliography (1950-1982) of the work of Edward Kamau BrathwaiteHistoryBibliography811ocn041513424book19990.92Brathwaite, KamauConversations with Nathaniel MackeyHistoryBiographyPoetryInterviews782ocn310154878book20090.94Otto, MelanieA Creole experiment : utopian space in Kamau Brathwaite's video-style worksCriticism, interpretation, etc"Kamau Brathwaite's writing covers a whole range of creative expressions. The most distinctive, known as "Sycorax video style," involves an experiment with different font sizes and layouts that not only challenges the limits of the text, but also reveals a sustained engagement with the political reality of contemporary West Indian life. Brathwaite's "creole cosmos" expresses both a global "collision of cultures" and a utopian vision for which the Caribbean is presented as a model. In this sense, Brathwaite's work engages the current debates about the global dimension of creoleness and creolization while critiquing them at the same time. In A Creole Experiment, Melanie Otto examines the utopian aspect of Brathwaite's major "video-style" works while employing the concepts of Heimat (homeland) and "concrete utopia," which were developed by philosopher Ernst Bloch in The Principle of Hope. She also focuses on Brathwaite's interrogation and reinterpretation of the conventions of magical realism. Unlike mainstream Latin American magical realism, Brathwaite's work is radical in both form and content, developing a distinctly creole aesthetic. In addition, Otto notes that Brathwaite's vision of a "creole cosmos" does not refer to an ideal place. Instead, it reveals the tangibility of an often dismal day-to-day existence. In this well-researched, engaging study, Otto convincingly argues that Braithwaite seeks to deliver ways of connecting the act of writing with a sense of place and with the lived reality of the Caribbean, in order to create and recreate that reality."--Publisher's website+-+3810677406324642ocn049391789book20010.82Best, CurwenRoots to popular culture : Barbadian aesthetics : Kamau Brathwaite to hardcore stylesHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+5567428885324622ocn302189354book20090.92Best, CurwenKamau Brathwaite and Christopher Okigbo : art, politics, and the music of ritualCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+0162664858401ocn864562222book20130.80Torres-Saillant, SilvioCaribbean poetics : toward an aesthetic of West Indian literatureCriticism, interpretation, etc"Caribbean Poetics studies the literatures written in European languages in the West Indies as a regionally unified corpus with its own identity. Torres-Saillant examines recurring thematic motifs and formal devices that Caribbean literary artists have drawn from in the last six decades, isolating their engagement with language, religion, and history as primary components of their cultural discourse. Arguing that West Indian literary texts contain clues to their own explication, the study substantiates the aesthetic autonomy of the region's literary tradition by means of individualized readings of the works of three of its principal figures from three different linguistic blocs: Pedro Mir from the Dominican Republic, Kamau Brathwaite from Barbados, and Rene Depestre from Haiti. The book places Caribbean literature in the larger context of comparative poetics by discussing the historical, political, and cultural forces that mediate its interaction with other literary systems."--BOOK JACKET+-+9256870936392ocn017344886book19860.97Brathwaite, Doris MonicaEKB, his published prose & poetry, 1948-1986 : a checklistHistoryBibliography361ocn527366333book20030.25Contemporary Black biography. profiles from the international Black communityBiographyBiographical profiles of important and influential persons of African heritage who form the international black community.
