Letter from "Eddie" [Edward Kamau Brathwaite]

Scope and Content

A signed copy letter to Brian [Cox] from Edward Kamau Brathwaite (b. 1930), poet, historian and essayist.

He bemoans the "ignorant establishment" for "separating my literary work from my work in history" and the fact that his poetry is ignored.
