Item description for Crackle at Midnight (Heinemann Frontline Series) by Lupenga Mphande...

Exile is the key to these poems. The poet, one of the acclaimed major Malawian poets, is widely published and currently an academic in the USA. This new collection of poems is an expression of memories of home recollected in exile. Through the mediation of a reflective yet detached tone, rich nature imagery and a composed narrative pace, he describes the lustrous environment of his homeland, and also its inequities and social injustices. He borrows freely from the African oral tradition of praise poetry.

Reviews - What do customers think about Crackle at Midnight (Heinemann Frontline Series)?

Brilliant Adventure!!!  Dec 22, 2004
This is a rare adventure with a must read engagement. Mphande has invited people to a world full of love, lament, and hope for his beloved country Malawi, using language that is both subtle and poetically satisfying to the reader. The poems in this collection combine imagery and a narrative voice that moves the reader with a tremendous sense of nostalgia and romanticism for rural life, struggle, friendship and family. I think Mphande scores big with this collection. Masterpiece!!!
