Copper sun by Countee Cullen( Book )

14 editions published between 1926 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Countee Cullen is already established as one of the vivid figures standing out from the younger group of modern poets. His first book, 'Color, ' attracted wide critical attention and praise. In 'Copper Sun' he has moved steadily on. Full of rich imagery, the subdued gaiety and naïveté of his race, and the sophistication of the modern intellectual, 'Copper Sun' presents many facets to the reader of poetry who demands something more than lyric prettiness. This new collection contains a number of poems which have been in great demand since their appearances in various magazines. It includes such distinguished poems as 'Confession, ' 'From the Dark Tower, ' 'Uncle Jim, ' 'The Litany of the Dark Peoples' and 'The Ballad of the Brown Girl.'"--Dust jack inside flap

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
