A major and sometimes controversial figure of the Harlem Renaissance, Countee Cullen fused a mastery of the formal lyric with a passionate engagement with themes social, religious, racial, and personal in such books as Color, Copper Sun, and The Black Christ. Certain of his poems-- "Heritage," "Yet Do I Marvel"--Are widely celebrated, but much of Cullen's work remains to be discovered. This volume restores to print a body of work of singular intensity and beauty
