About the Author

Linton Kwesi Johnson is known and revered as the world's first dub poet. Born in Chapelton, a small town in the parish of Clarendon, Jamaica, he came to England in 1963. He gained a sociology degree in the mid-1970s from Goldsmiths' College, London, and had poems, inspired by politics and the Black movement, published in the journal Race Today. He is an Associate Fellow of Warwick University, an Honorary Fellow of Wolverhampton Polytechnic and received an award at the 13th Premo Internazionale Ultimo Novecento for his contribution to poetry and popular music. He has toured the world from Japan to South Africa, Europe to Brazil, and is only the second living poet to have been published by Penguin Classics.
