Description

"As a writer, Breytenbach has the gift of being able to descend effortlessly into the Africa of the poetic unconscious and return with the rhythm and the words, the words in the rhythm, that give life." -- J.M. Coetzee, New York Review of Books

"[Frankétienne's] work can speak to the most intellectual person in the society as well as the most humble. It's a very generous kind of genius he has, one I can't imagine Haitian literature ever existing without." -- Edwidge Danticat

"[Aimé Césaire is] one of the most powerful French poets of the century." -- New York Times Book Review
