Ossobó by Donald Burness
Call Number: Hillman Library JQ3685.A91 F73 2011
The first English language work devoted solely and specifically to the literature of Sao Tome and Principe. Contains three essays discussing themes unique to this country - themes that no critic writing in any language has dealt with to any serious degree. Burness examines the poetry and stories on the mythic bird of Sao Tome and Principe, the Ossobo; literature that treats the massacre of 1953, often referred to as the Massacre of Batapa; and the poetry and drama of Fernando de Macedo. Concludes with an appendix of 23 poems from São Tomé & Principe.
