Post-colonial poetry project


This guide is designed to introduce you to the greater LibGuides academic research community, and to help you sharpen your researching skills (searching, evaluating, citing, presenting) as they relate to the study of World Literature.

For this assignment, you will focus on a poet from a country, or an ethnic group, that falls under the categories of “post colonial” or “third world” (also known as the “developing world”).

Good luck researching!
