KIRKUS REVIEW

Twenty-six black poets of self-awareness from all over the French-speaking world--Haiti, Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Martinique, Senegal, Mali, Congo, Ivory Coast, Madagascar, Cameroon. You won't have heard of most, except for Aime Cesaire, who coined the word ""negritude"" in a 1944 poem.
