First edition.Inscribed by the author in the year of publication "To Eugene / with the best of wishes" and signed "Kofi Awoonor / 11/28/1992".Kofi Awoonor [1935-2013] was killed in the Westgate shopping mall attack in Kenya in September 2013. With his death, Ghana lost a much loved and respected poet, literary critic and elder statesman. Awoonor was the author of novels, poems, plays, political essays and literary criticism. In the early 1970s, he served as Chairman of the Department of Comparative Literature at SUNY Stonybrook, returning to Ghana in 1975 to teach at the University College of Cape Coast. Awoonor grew up in the newly independent Ghana. His outspoken political views, his close friendship with its first president Kwame Nkrumah, and his fierce loyalty to the Ewe traditions of his grandmother, made him a controversial figure and under the military rulers who held power in the 1970s, he was arrested and jailed for ten months for allegedly being involved in a 1975 coup plot. In the last two decades, Awoonor contributed to the development of Ghana's democracy, both as a oounselor to the head of state and as Ghana's ambassador to the United Nations from 1990 to 1994.

Teaching herself to read, she was composing waltzes by the age of 4 and was performing public piano recitals, playing Handel, Beethoven, Chopin and her own compositions, by the age of seven. Moving to Boston in 1875, she studied piano with Ernst Perabo and Carl Baermann and later studied composition for a year with Junius W. Hill. Otherwise self-taught, she learned by studying great classical pieces. She made her professional piano debut in Boston in 1883 and soon after appeared as a soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. After her marriage to Dr. Henry Harris Aubrey Beach in 1885, she agreed to limit her performances to one a year and devoted herself to composition. Her first real success came 1892 with the performance of her "Mass in E-flat major" by the Handel and Haydn Society which established her an one of America's foremost composers. She composed "Jubilate" for the dedication of the Woman's Building at the Columbian Exposition. After her husband's death, she toured Europe as a pianist to establish her reputation as a pianist and composer. Returning to American she spent time at the MacDowell Colony in Perterborough, NH and later became the composer-in-residence at New York City's St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church. She died of a heart attack in 1944 and was inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame in 1999. Bookseller Inventory # 33148
