Read this fascinating, deeply moving interview that Joyelle McSweeney conducted with Kamau Brathwaite (and visit, if you haven't, the Save CowPastor site established for Brathwaite by Tom Raworth). In the face of direct environmental oppression he's evolved a remarkable living sense of ecology in which both technology and nostalgia play a part. The descriptons of his work and sensibility sound mythic, but not in the top-down organizational fashion of the myths of nature in The Cantos, for example. More ad hoc, built from materials of daily life, practical.
