NPR Summary

Difficult, necessary and at times incendiary, Amiri Baraka began his career with the Beats and became a fierce advocate of political art, a voice against oppression and capitalism and a poet unafraid of courting controversy and fury. This is one of the most comprehensive volumes of his work, from his first collection to the unpublished pieces he wrote towards the end of his life.
