Summary:
"Canticles is a lyric-styled epic. Testament II--these Canticles II (MMXIX) and next Canticles II (MMXX)--issues re-readings--revisions, rewrites--of scriptures crucial to the emergent (Anglophone) African Diaspora in the Americas. Canticles II (MMXIX) follows Testament I (also issued in two parts--Canticles I [MMXVI] and Canticles I [MMXVII]) whose subject is History, principally, of slavery and imperialism and liberation and independence. Canticles II is properly irreverent where necessary, but never blasphemous. It is scripture become what it always is, really, anyway: Poetry."-- Provided by publisher.
