About: It is no more a cry. Namibian Poetry

When It is no more a cry: Namibian Poetry in Exile was originally published in 1982 it was regarded as a documentation of culture in resistance hitherto unaccessible. This reprint is supplemented by Essays on Literature in Resistance and Nation Building by the editor Henning Melber. They explore the place of this particular literature and poetry in Namibian society. This volume offers access to a unique aspect in the history of the Namibian struggle for self-determination during a crucial period of time. The testimony is aimed particularly to serve a new generation in Namibia, who has not lived through this important part of our history. The re-publication will help them to achieve a fuller understanding of a difficult and bitter time. It will also foster a better and clearer perspective on events in our present societies. Given our current rite de passage or interregnum, the insights presented in these re-published texts are more than historical evidence. They offer lessons from the past for the present and the future.
