About the Author

David Grundy teaches at Robinson College, University of Cambridge, UK.

Reviews

"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
