Chinua Achebe – Beware Soul Brother


A black brother with a long look

A ruthless but compassionate look, starting from Africa and flowing into the world, rich of metaphors and mythologies. Chinua Achebe’s thirty poems show the magic and disenchantment of Nigerian people, who are subjected to history and, for this reason, are able to be lucid beyond limit.

Translation by Amneris Di Cesare (edited by Sara Di Girolamo)
