Selected Poems

Louise Bennett
CATEGORIES: Sense of Culture

The Jamaican poet and folklorist was well known in her home country for working to preserve the practice of presenting poetry, folk songs, and stories in patois. This book rounds up some of the best of Miss Lou’s literary poetry, which offers valuable insight into Jamaican culture. (Recommended by H.E. Audrey Patrice Marks, Jamaican ambassador to the U.S., in CN Traveler.)
