Cape Coast Castle

A Collection of Poems

by Kwadwo Opoku-Agyemang

Cape Coast Castle is one of three slave castles on the coast of Ghana. The poet believes that a place so savaged became a victim of society, and a new orientation can only come about by breaking the ancient silence. Naming the trauma involves him in exploring the condition of the African world. Weaving an intricate network of powerful images, his verse is both forceful and lyrical. A teacher of literature at the University of Cape Coast, the poet is acknowledged as a strong voice among the new generation of African poets.
