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.
