The book is divided into three parts. Part One contains the most accessible poems while Part Two offers more challenging poems for pupils in Form Three and above. Part Three is suitable for candidates sitting the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education and its equivalent in other East African countries, and for undergraduates. Each poem is followed by questions on style, mood and meaning. In his Introduction A.D. Amateshe provides a clear guide to African poetry today and sets the poems in their historical context. A glossary at the end explains useful critical terms..
