Turning and turning in the widening gyre | The falcon cannot hear the falconer | Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold | Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world | The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere | The ceremony of innocence is drowned | The best lack all conviction, while the worst | Are full of passionate intensity. — W.B. Yeats, The Second Coming
Dialogue: Newest Issue
Dr. Roi Kwabena‘s latest issue of Dialogue is currently available, in PDF format, directly from him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This latest issue as usual covers a broad range of very interesting topics, mostly centred on themes of resistance to slavery, African and indigenous cultures, contemporary politics in Africa and the Caribbean, poetry, short stories, biographies of Caribbean literary and artistic personalities, poetry, museum reviews, more poetry, and finally some very interesting photographs of Trinidad Amerindian artifacts. It is 140 pages long and reminds one of some of the classic locally published reviews one used to find more frequently in the Caribbean in the past. The signs of life of an anti-colonial intelligentsia are not altogether gone, but in some cases they have moved abroad and make their presence felt over the Internet.
