Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Understanding African Poetry is a valuable asset to anyone interested in African anglophone poetry. Goodwin offers textual analysis, evaluation, and supplementary contextual information on each of the ten poets he chose to discuss. Much of the analysis shows a keen insight and the contextual commentary is quite informative. However, Goodwin's evaluation reflects his bias towards British and white American concepts of what constitutes "good" poetry.
