SELECTED POEMS Louise Bennett Miss Lou

Publisher: Sangster's Book Stores Ltd.

A fantastically humorous selection of poems by the authority on Jamaican folklore - the Hon. Louise Bennett Coverley, O.M., O.J., M.B.E., Hon. D.Litt. - affectionately called 'Miss Lou'. An ideal purchase for Jamaicans longing for a piece of home as well as everyone interested in Jamaica's literary culture; this book contains poems selected for their literary merit. Added features include: notes; commentary and teaching questions which "highlight the socio-cultural implications and various aspects of the poet's technique, such as the disciplined cunning of her imagery, her verbal concentration and the many allusions in her work." The poems are easy to read and the collection is complete with an extensive Glossary. Each piece provides unique and valuable insights into the Jamaican culture and the essence of what it means to be Jamaican.
