Copper Sun

ByCountee CullenCharles Cullen

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Poet, playwright, novelist, graduate of DeWitt Clinton High, New York University, and Harvard University, Countee Cullen (1903–1946) emerged as a leading literary figure of the Harlem Renaissance. Copper Sun, his second book of poetry, explores the emotional consequences of being black, Christian, bisexual, and a poet in Jazz Age America—such as in the following “Confession”: If for a day joy masters me, Think not my wounds are healed; Far deeper than the scars you see, I keep the roots concealed. They shall bear blossoms with the fall; I have their word for this, Who tend my roots with rains of gall, And suns of prejudice. Countee Cullen’s poetry is illustrated with 16 decorative cuts created by Charles Cullen (no relation to the poet) in extravagant Art Deco style.
