Uncommon Wealth

An Anthology of Poetry in English

Book - 1997
Rate this:
The poems and lyrics in this book were written in English over a period of 400 years by 500 authors from countries and territories on almost every continent. This range offers readers ways of seeing histories of poetic practice and changing forms of poetic expression in English from various regional, national and international perspectives. Beginning with the early colonial period, British, American and Canadian poetry is represented alongside the work of poets from the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand, Africa, South Asia, South America, Europe and indigenous peoples' communities. It is intended that by reading poets among their continental and transcontinental relations, awareness should be promoted of what poems mean by allowing their complex histories and languages to enter post-colonial space.
