The Breast of the Earth: A Survey of the History, Culture, and Literature of Africa South of the Sahara. New York, Doubleday, 1975. The Ghana Revolution. New York, Oases, 1984. Awoonor's much anthologized poem "The Weaver Bird," with its rediscovered shrines defiled by the droppings of foreign religions and false political messiahs, is written in this tradition. In "Dirge" the inarticulacy of the poet's grief over bygone poetic traditions is itself living evidence of their loss. The persona in the poems of Night of My Blood is both liminal and central, and his journey is at once realistic and mythical, leading into himself and his society.
