Like his earlier work, the poems in this collection are marked by the lushness of imagery, the urgency of tone, and the muscular rhythms of a poet who is also a literary scholar and a reggae musician.

These poems treat the mysteries of displacement, loss, belonging, and -- new to the mix -- the slavery upon which the American South was built and which haunts it today.Midland is the winner of the prestigious Ohio University Press Hollis Summers Poetry Prize. Dawess first book, Progeny of Air, won Englands Forward Poetry Prize, and he has published four other collections in the UK.

Poems from Midland have appeared in Canadian, British, and American journals including Ariel, The London Review of Books, and Callaloo. He is also the editor of Wheel and Come Again, the landmark anthology of reggae poetry.
