Read Detailed Book Description


Words Need Love Too represents, perhaps Kamau Brathwaite’s most concentrated effort at fashioning a new literary tradition out of the fragmented pieces/rhythms/nation languages that form the New World. The poems in this volume are "dreamstories." It is a harvest of dreams of a new world, cleansed in ancestral blood, loved without reservation by those born into it and with it, so that through it they can shape a new reality, a new desitiny. No other poet, living or dead, makes us participants in, and co-celebrants of the liturgy of the word, like Brathwaite.
