Countee Cullen on the Nativity

Christus natus est

One of the great crimes of the twentieth century is the virtual disappearance of Countee Cullen from the record of its poetry.  The power, integrity, and beauty of his opus is worth looking for and looking into.  A few years back a Collected Poems was published--I think it is out of print, but it's worth picking up if you should find a copy.


  1. Curiously, Cullen is unrepresented on Project Gutenberg, too. I was hoping to download some of his work for reading on my smartphone while traveling today, but...nope.
