Description

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 Eritreas main languages. The enormous popular appeal of his poetryin print and on the Internethas 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 oldand 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. <P>Charles Cantalupo works directly with Reesom Haile to offer versions of Hailes work which attempts to join two languages and two traditions in a common effort of poetry that is modern yet classical, epigrammatic, and enduring.
