THE MEDEA And Some Poems by Countee Cullen

THE MEDEA And Some Poems

Email this review


After a long silence, Countee Cullen, foremost negro poet, issues this version of Euripides' classic -- a colloquial one, full of fine lines and quotable sentences, but not apt to widen Cullen's market. There are a few-- very few ""other poems"" -- none that strike this reader as comparable to some of his earlier work in Color, Copper Sun and Black Christ.
