Heart of Africa! Poems of Love, Loss and Longing Selected by Patricia Schonstein
01 Dec 2014
In this eloquently curated anthology, Patricia Schonstein brings together a wide, rich range of love poems all ‘touched by Africa’.
The words of Nobel Laureates, well-established poets and emerging poets share the pages to remind us of poetry’s unique place in the landscape of the human heart.
Love is expressed in the many guises of endearment, passion and erotic pursuit. The dark matter of loss, betrayal and tragic jealousy are woven in with fidelity, beauty and tenderness to reveal an infinitely varied and detailed fabric.
Patricia Schonstein is an internationally published and critically acclaimed novelist and poet. Her work has been endorsed by the Nobel Laureates JM Coetzee and Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu.
Heart of Africa! is the third of a series. It joins Africa! My Africa! and Africa Ablaze! to form a wonderful storehouse of poetry.
