Description

Lamentations on the Rwandan Genocide, 2nd Edition offers a powerful, poetic response to the 1994 genocide in Rwanda and its aftermath. This edition of the collection by Pierre-Damien Mvuyekure adds three new poems and additional explanatory notes to his original 2006 collection. Ishmael Reed lauded that 2006 release, stating that Mvuyekure, one of our best critics, uses his rich, eloquent poetic voice to insure that the memories of one of the Twentieth Century s most horrific Holocausts won t be buried as unsung as the victims were.--From the publisher.
