First published in 1945, this compilation features the work of Jamaican poet George Campbell. Perceptive and inspirational, these poems consider the events that marked the nationalist struggle for Jamaican independence, such as the imprisonment of militants by British colonial authorities, the appalling social conditions that drove the masses to revolt, and the desperate poverty of the black majority. Honoring martyred heroes of the Jamaican struggle against slavery and colonialism, Campbell writes about the hopes and consolations to be derived from religious faith, but a faith in which Jesus and Lenin were not necessarily incompatible icons. Other, more personal topics, such as love and its ecstasies and bitter disappointments and Jamaica’s natural beauty are also celebrated.

“Ms. Worth brilliantly employs all aspects of the poet’s craft.” – The New York Times Book Review Each of the exquisite twenty-three poems in this posthumous collection by Valerie Worth carefully distinguishes one animal from all other creatures and captures it in all of its wonderful singularity – from wasp to snake to wren. The way Worth perfectly illuminates the uniqueness of each animal in her precise and elegant free verse will delight both fans of her celebrated Small Poems and readers encountering her poetry for the first time. Breathtakingly rich cut-paper illustrations by Steve Jenkins provide a perfect counterpoint to Worth’s spare style, and together poetry and picture bring every animal vividly to life. Animal Poems is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
