Starting with a Preface to a Twenty Volume Suicide Note, and including many out-of-print and limited edition chapbooks and broadsides, Transblusency: The Selected Poems of Amiri Baraka concisely illuminates Baraka's almost single-handed renovation of both the nature and form of post-WWII African American literature, and his profound influence on a generation of poets of all ethnic backgrounds.
