9781900715065: Jacko Jacobus

Poor sower of seeds with a gift for dreaming, Jacko Jacobus knows that his destiny is to found a people to shake the nations. But when he has to flee Jamaica to escape his brother's wrath, he finds himself pushing crack for his Uncle Al in South Carolina.

In writing his dub version of the myth of Jacob and Esau, Kwame Dawes builds on a gripping narrative of prophecy, love, deceit and murder to address contemporary Caribbean realities; and in portraying the conflict between Jacko's trickster, anancy inventiveness and the narrow righteousness of his brother Eric's path, he explores the universal tensions between Jacko's sense of duty and his desire to make his own way; whatever the consequences

From the Publisher:

Kwame Dawes won the prestigious Forward Poetry Prize in 1994 for his first collection, Progeny of Air. His second collection from Peepal Tree, Prophets, received wide critical acclaim. A professor of English at the university of South Carolina, Kwame's work is attracting attention all over the world.

Review:

'The Caribbean is finding a big new voice of alarm in Kwame Dawes. Jacko Jacobus is a long rollickingly controll biographical-political-erotical epic - a novel in two-line verse-form almost - but always a poem - inspire by that most socially intriguing of Old Testament Bible 'prophets', the story of Jacob and Esau.

Already I hear this on radio, on CD, see it in flim & video Where nex to, Jacko? -- Kamau Brathwaite
