Morning in Serra Mattu
A Nubian Ode as Told to E.G. Dubovsky Who Recorded It in VerseBook - 2014
An oral recitation of life in the Sudan from the 1940's to the building of the Aswan Dam, as told to E. G. Dubovsky, who recorded it in meter. It is rich with the dailiness of the Nubians, the seasonal planting and harvesting, marriages, education -- one young man goes to Oxford and is befriended by Aldous Huxley. The metrics are never intrusive, but vital to the telling.
