9781847771032: A Light Song of Light

Exploring the relationship between poetry and song, the pieces in this collection work to define the elemental human struggles of good versus evil and light against darkness. The poems take different shapes—newly forged dictionary definitions; praise-songs celebrating the Singerman in a Jamaican road gang; and simple narratives of ghosts, bandits, and other night creatures—and present an accomplished and progressive voice from a new generation of Caribbean writers.

Book Description Carcanet Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Kei Miller s work was acclaimed by the distinguished Jamaican writer Olive Senior as Some of the most exciting poetry I ve read in years.An extraordinary new voice singing with clarity and grace . A Light Song of Light sings in the rhythms of ritual and folktale, praise songs and anecdotes, blending lyricism with a cool wit, finding the languages in which poetry can sing in dark times. The book is in two parts: Day Time and Night Time, each exploring the inseparable elements that together make a whole. Behind the daylight world of community lies another, disordered, landscape: stories of ghosts and bandits, a darkness violent and seductive. At the heart of the collection is the Singerman, a member of Jamaica s road gangs in the 1930s, whose job was to sing while the rest of the gang broke stones. He is a presence both mundane and shamanic. Kei Miller s poems celebrate our incredible and abundant lives , facing the darkness and making from it a song of the light.
