Why an alphabet e-book of African American poets? easily as a fashion of offering the paintings of many poets, poets who write for adults in addition to childrens, in a sort that either teenagers and adults can get pleasure from. although this isn't an alphabet ebook within the conventional feel, it's an A to Z examine twenty-five poems and one African American non secular chosen by way of Ashley Bryan from a variety of African American poets. His choices are, for the main half, no longer whole poems, yet fragments -- samples which are whole of their personal manner, and that encouraged him to create photographs that seize the essence of the poetry in one other shape. his great work, in tempera and gouache, are his salute to the twenty-five poets whose works are incorporated. popular for his story-telling, his photograph books, his personal poetry, and for his lectures on African American poetry, Ashley Bryan right here offers readers of every age an opportunity to proportion the enjoyment he has skilled within the paintings of a few of the poets he specially enjoys.
