DescriptionCentury Worm confronts the impact of Western colonial policies and the sundering of nostalgia as the collection's speaker recalls living amid ethnic and political violence in West Africa's Ivory Coast. Drawing on human rights reports and personal experience, Century Worm wrestles with the ethical complexities of the lyric speaker. The poems concern themselves with the contours of belonging, with intimate relationship across distances, and with negotiating globalized subject positions.
