The Essential Gwendolyn Brooks

by Arnold Burian

Discover the most enduring works of legendary poet Gwendolyn Brooks–the first black author to win a Pulitzer Prize–in one collectible volume. If you wanted a poem, wrote Gwendolyn Brooks, you only had to look out of a window. There was material always, walking or running, fighting or screaming or singing. From the life of Chicago’s South Side she made a forceful and passionate poetry that fused Modernist aesthetics with African-American cultural tradition, a poetry that registered the life of the streets and the upheavals of the 20th century.
