"Featuring seven new, never-before-published poems in addition to Chinua Achebe's award-winning earlier work, Collected Poems makes available again after more than twenty-five years the poetry of Africa's foremost novelist. From an account of the tragedy of Biafra to an appeal to African consciousness, from a gentle mockery of tradition to a recollection of personal relationships, Achebe's poems are marked by a richness of language and blend simplicity and eloquence, fierceness and tenderness and a careful attention to the minute - a facial expression, a wrinkled hand, a sunbeam."--Jacket
