Poetry. African-American Studies. The latest offering from the Subpress collective, THE BLACK WARRIOR & OTHER POEMS showcases Lauture's powerfully unadorned verse. Strands of French and Creole dot the surface of this mostly English-language work, evoking both Lauture's Haitian origins and present-day realities as a politically engaged college professor in the Bronx. "Denize Lauture's poetry uses simple words that create striking and unexpected images carrying the light and the freshness of the air of the high altitudes where he was born and cannot forget, with the intent of helping to change an unjust society. Thus, his poetry is functional in order to awaken those stuck in lethargic indifference"-Franck Laraque.
