travelogue of the bereaved
charles c smith
These remarkable and challenging poems confront the notion of “home.” Closely attentive to form and content, narrative and emotion, history and the contemporary, and inspired by the techniques of jazz, Travelogue of the Bereaved tells stories that are little known — the lives of persons of African descent at different periods in the Americas. These stories speak to our times and their foundations, recreating figures such as Marie Josephe Angelique, Viola Desmond, John Brown, Maryann Shadd, and Mumia. Weaving between sections and using multiple forms, the collection exposes the transhistorical by linking each narrative to a more telling composition.
