Summary
Fusing the personal and the political in high-voltage verse, Amiri Baraka, "whose long illumination of the black experience in America was called incandescent in some quarters and incendiary in others" (New York Times), was one of the preeminent literary innovators of the past century. Selected by Paul Vangelisti, this volume comprises the fullest spectrum of Baraka's rousing, revolutionary poems, from his first collection to previously unpublished pieces composed during his final years
