Writing from Barbados, which used to see itself as an English county (Bimshire), Adisa Andwele's collection sets out to uncover and celebrate a past whose links with Africa survive in the folkways of country people, with a history of resistance and cultural creation, and its own heroes such as Bussa, Nannie Grigg and Clement Payne. But it is a past which is in danger of obliteration by the new forces of global/Americanised culture and Adisa's poems have an urgency which is felt in their rhythms and striking images. This is a Barbadian collection to the core, a celebration of Barbadian nation-language, the rhythms of its music and its distinctive African-derived culture. Whilst readers have begun to be familiar with the nation-language poetry and reggae/calypso cultures of Jamaica and Trinidad, the cultural grass-roots of Barbados have received little exposure. Adisa Andwele's book changes that. Antiquity will be a significant addition to poetry courses that look at oral/performance/dub poetry.
