9780974276427: Lamentations on the Rwandan Genocide

Lamentations on the Rwandan Genocide by Pierre-Damien Mvuyekure is a poignant, often-painful reflection on the travesties of the Rwandan Genocide of 1994. This collection combines diverse linguistic and cultural traditions to offer poetic explorations of the violence and aftermath of genocide. With fifteen poems and an extensive section of notes on Rwandan culture, Lamentations on the Rwandan Genocide both documents a historical tragedy and forges new literary ground.

Review:

With Lamentations on the Rwandan Genocide, Pierre-Damien Mvuyekure, one of our best critics, uses his rich, eloquent poetic voice to insure that the memories of one of the Twentieth Century's most horrific Holocausts won t be buried as unsung as the victims were. --Ishmael Reed, author of Mumbo Jumbo
