Gwendolyn Brooks: On "We Real Cool"

The WEs in "We Real Cool" are tiny, wispy, weakly argumentative "Kilroy-is-here" announcements.  The boys have no accented sense of themselves, yet they are aware of a semi-defined personal importance.  Say the "We" softly.

Brooks, Gwendolyn.  Report from Part One.  Detroit: Broadside Press, 1972.
