Abstract

Strange yet familiar, the lonely voices of the Old English lament and the African American blues call beyond the walls of the text, captivating audiences, engaging listeners in a dialogue of longing. Although the lyrics of each poetry speak the language of a poetic tradition that evolved within a distinct history and culture, the voices are remarkably similar in their emotive expression of personal and social struggle.
