About the Author
David Grundy teaches at Robinson College, University of Cambridge, UK.
"Grundy (Univ. of Cambridge, UK) chronicles the Umbra poets, historical moments (for instance the assassination of Malcolm X in 1965), and the rise of black nationalism, investigating them--and the literature that came out of this period of awakening--with equal thoroughness ... Grundy is also an excellent close reader of poetry. Though Grundy is an academic, there is no academic jargon in this well-researched, clearly presented study. He does an excellent job of dealing with the complexities of this history and how it informed the period." - CHOICE
