Synopsis

In times of political or social uncertainties the poet usually takes on the mantle of prophet, priest, or seer. He becomes not just the custodian of justice, but also the symbolic voice of the unified society. It is these unique and peculiar roles that Wole Soyinka (Nigeria), Claude McKay (USA), and Jean Toomer (USA) used poetry as a medium to enunciate their anxieties, frustrations, doubts, hopes, and desires about the repressive systems in their respective countries.
