Portrait of Colossus by Samatar Elmi
PBS Summer Pamphlet Choice 2021


Product Details

Portrait of Colossus, Samatar Elmi’s searingly forthright début poetry pamphlet, brims with a mix of vulnerability and erudition. Pitched between the lilt of hooyo’s admonitions and Ted Hughes’ eye for the natural world, many of the poems reconcile disparate worlds, cultures and identities, firing them with the lyricism of Dawud’s Psalms.
