In this compilation, more than 50 contemporary Jamaican poets reflect in outspoken, meditative, humorous, and outrageous ways upon the historical and existential moment of Jamaican independence.

Often surprising and sometimes alarming, this book affirms the contributors recognition of what it means to be Jamaican."
