Most widely held works by Landeg White
The collected lyric poems of Luís de Camões by Luís de Camões( )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gives English readers the first comprehensive collection of Camoes sonnets, songs, elegies, hymms, odes, eclogues, and other poems-more than 280 lyrics altogether, all rendered in engaging verse. Camoes was the first great European artist to cross into the Southern Hemisphere, and his poetry bears the marks of nearly two decades spent in north and east Africa, the Persian Gulf, India, and Macau. From an elegy set in Morocco, to a hymn written at Cape Guardafui on the northern tip of Somalia, to the first modern European love poems for a non-European woman, these lyrics reflect Camoes's encounters with radically unfamiliar peoples and places
Magomero : portrait of an African village by Landeg White( Book )

16 editions published between 1987 and 1996 in English and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Magomero is a vivid historical portrait of a Malawian village from 1859 to the present day. It focuses on a region which saw historically important political activity, in the founding of a colony of freed slaves and the rising of an independent church movement against white estate owners. With the dual concerns of a Southern African specialist and a poet, Landeg White offers an 'inside' view of social, political and economic change in Malawi, seen through the lives of individuals: the ordinary men and women, whose situation and poverty have hitherto prevented recognition of their vital contribution to African history'--from back cover
