Poets of Guinea-Bissau

Author Frederick G. Williams

There are seventeen poets represented in this bilingual anthology and eighty-six poems; these include poems written in both Portuguese and Guinean Creole and range from the twentieth century to the present, but with the bulk written in Portuguese in the last century. There is also a broad range of topics and political points of view, as well as a diversity of racial and cultural ethnicity represented among the poets. But whether they were Africans, Portuguese, or a mixture of both, the principle-guiding criterion for their inclusion is their poems' inherent literary value.
