 About the Book 

Poetry. When a (young) Empire for the first time suffers invasion, hurt, pain, a casting off of symbols, trauma before the closing of ranks, vessels, values, there is also a reconsideration--at best a reconstitution--of the very tissues of languageMorePoetry. When a (young) Empire for the first time suffers invasion, hurt, pain, a casting off of symbols, trauma before the closing of ranks, vessels, values, there is also a reconsideration--at best a reconstitution--of the very tissues of language as if the culture has to learn how to speak all over again, to see itself--if lucky--fresh. A beginning which is made here, in these remarkable poems by Leonard Schwartz. THE TOWER OF DIVERSE SHORES is one of the finest collection of this new post-catastrophe generation--Kamau Brathwaite.
