Cannibal, Paperback / softback Book

Description

Colliding with and confronting The Tempest and postcolonial identity, the poems in Safiya Sinclair's Cannibal explore Jamaican childhood and history, race relations in America, womanhood, otherness, and exile.

She evokes a home no longer accessible and a body at times uninhabitable, often mirrored by a hybrid Eve/Caliban figure.

Blooming with intense lyricism and fertile imagery, these full-blooded poems are elegant, mythic, and intricately woven.

Here the female body is a dark landscape; the female body is cannibal.

Sinclair shocks and delights her readers with her willingness to disorient and provoke, creating a multitextured collage of beautiful and explosive poems.
