The literature of Mozambique is a hidden gem, rich but unknown to English speakers except for a few novels by Mia Couto. This anthology brings Mozambique's poetry to English for the first time. The twenty-seven poets and more than 130 poems in "Poets of Mozambique" cover the entire history of Mozambican literature. from its beginnings as oral literature, through its more than 400-year long colonial period and its more than 30 years as an independent nation. Faithfully rendered, Williams' translations are both beautiful and present the inherent literary value of an important branch of African literature. With this anthology, Mozambique's poetry is finally available to English speakers.
