About the author (1991)

Winner of the Rotterdam International Poetry Prize and the PEN Freedom-to-Write award, Mapanje was jailed by Malawian authorities without trial from September 1987 to August 11, 1991---a situation that called international attention to this many-sided genius. A poet, folklorist, editor, and teacher, Mapanje is the founder and editor of Odi: A Journal of Malawi Literature and Kalulu: Journal of Oral Literature.
