CFS: Edited Volume - Literary And Cultural Aesthetics In The 21st Century: Revisiting Amiri Baraka’s Legacy

Baraka's poetic productions and general body of work have garnered mixed appreciation. According to David L. Smith, “Some observers have regarded him as confused and unstable, others have hailed him as the apostle of the Black Aesthetic or as the Father of Contemporary Black Poetry”.
