  • Description

    Item notes : Maxine LautrĂ¢e [?] interviews Cyril Rogers-Wright, who has been writing poems for three years. The subject of his poetry is love, but not romantic love. He explains the limitations of the English language when expressing images of Sierra Leone. He refuses to have his poems published, until he is completely happy with his images of African experiences. He is writing a novel called 'Prisoners' about the struggle that African people feel within themselves as a result of Western education.
