Brief Description
Detailed Description
Specifications

This is the second bilingual collection of the poetry of the contemporary Eritrean poet, Reesom Haile. It follows an earlier anthology, We Have our Voice, which was published in 2000. Haile is widely recognized for his revolutionary modernization of the traditional art of poetry in Tigrinya, one of Eritrea’s main languages. The enormous popular appeal of his poetry–in print and on the Internet—has spilled into the streets of Asmara, where to stroll with Reesom Haile at any hour of the day is to be approached by the young and old—and people who are delighted to quote his lines back to him. Writing in Tigrinya, he joins a growing movement of African authors who are writing in their own languages.
