Sunrise Poison by Phillip Zhuwao (Deep South)

DS14

Sunrise Poison by Phillip Zhuwao (Deep South) DS14

Philip Zhuwao who died in 1997 aged 27 was a brilliantly original Zimbabwean poet. His poems are visceral, sharp-witted, linguistically playful, and uncompromising in their anarchic aesthetic and intensity. Rich is classical and literary references and following moments of chance, they move fluidly between the poet's inner pain, the scarred landscape of Harare's townships, and unforgettable images of rage and beauty.

Sunrise Poison co-edited with the poet in 1996, is the first of a planned four-volume collected by Zhuwao, which include fiction, essays and letters, as well as poetry.
