A selection of Linton Kwesi Johnson's best poems over three decades. Ranging from protests against police brutality to eulogies for departed friends and playful celebrations of urban life, Johnson's use of Jamaican dialect to tackle distinctly British subjects contributed to a revolution in the notion of literary English. This Selected Poems charts the unique literary talent of one of Britain's most influential poets and social critics.

Linton Kwesi Johnson (born 24 August 1952), is a Jamaican dub poet and activist who has been based in the UK since 1963. His poetry is often performed in collaboration with renowned British reggae musicians.
