In the Mecca

EPUB EBook by Gwendolyn Brooks

EBook Description

The title poem is beautiful, so densely aural and beautifully executed. In the Mecca EPUB EBook I paid more attention this time to the character of Alfred, a poet who lives in the building and dedicates his time to celebrating the vibrancy and vitality of black culture. I also love the "Two Dedications."

First Reading (2013): This collection marked Brooks's turn to explicit engagement with the Black Arts Movement in the later 1960s, though there is no dramatic change in her aesthetics. The title poem of the collection takes place in the "Mecca," a four- EPUBstory, overcrowded apartment building on Chicago's south side. It is roughly a narrative poem that introduces the many different characters who live in the Mecca and centers on the disappearance and murder of Pepita Smith, Mrs. Sallie's daughter. The name Pepita is pretty fascinating here. Like this book? Read online this: A Poem for Every Day!, Pilgrimage to Mecca.
