The startling new work by internationally celebrated Caribbean poet, historian and cultural theorist Kamau Brathwaite, winner of the 2006 Griffin Poetry Prize.

In DS (2)Dreamstories 2―Kamau Brathwaite continues his ongoing collection of prose poems, comprised of the broken images, flow, and half-told stories of dreams. The poetic stories in DS (2) use Brathwaite's trademark sycorax video style, offering personal revelations mixed with political and historical fables occurring around the globe. Brathwaite's prose poems relate with ardency and pathos the Caribbean experience and are a potent voice of the African diaspora. Nathaniel Mackey wrote: "Kamau Brathwaite's 'calibanic play' reveals a fiendish delight in the slippage to which words are prone." And American Book Review wrote: "In its rhythms as well as its explorations of 'nation language' and of the traces of an African past, this is a populist work." This exciting new offering by Kamau Brathwaite follows on the heels of the publication of Brathwaite's Born to Slow Horses, which won the coveted 2006 Griffin Poetry Prize.

About the Author:

Kamau Brathwaite was born in Barbados in 1930.

He is currently a professor of comparative literature at New York University, and shares his time between CowPastor, Barbados, and New York City.

Review:

“The poems are kaleidoscopic contortions that adopt the logic of dreams.”
- Courtney MacNeil, Chicago Review

“His dazzling, inventive language, his tragic yet unquenchable vision, make Brathwaite one of the most compelling of late-twentieth-century poets.”
- Adrienne Rich

“Kamau Brathwaite is one of the most important poets in the Western Hemisphere. A musicianly sensibility of sharp political reference.”
- Amira Baraka
