9780141186986: Mi Revalueshanary Fren: Selected Poems (Penguin Modern Classics)

A selection of Linton Kwesi Johnson's poems over three decades. Ranging from protests against police brutality to eulogies for departed friends and playful celebrations of urban life, Johnson's use of Jamaican dialect to tackle distinctly British subjects contributed to a revolution in the notion of literary English. Mi Revalueshanary Fren charts the unique literary talent of one of Britain's most influential poets and social critics.
