Linton Kwesi Johnson

Profile:
Linton Kwesi Johnson (aka LKJ) (born 24 August 1952, Chapelton, Jamaica) is a British-based author and dub poet. Johnson's poetry makes clever use of the unstandardised transcription of Jamaican Patois and is allied to the Jamaican "toasting" tradition. He became the second living poet, and the only black poet, to be published in the Penguin Classics series.
In 2020 the pioneer of dub poetry has been awarded the prestigious PEN Pinter prize for his "political ferocity and tireless scrutiny of history".
