OCHO RIOS, Jamaica - May 17, 2017 - PRLog -- In 2010, poet, author, and philosopher Tekla Mekfet presented the annual University of West Indies Bob Marley Lecture to an appreciative audience in Mona, Jamaica.

Taken from that lecture, Mekfet's book Could You Be Loved – Rastafari-Reggae Bob Marley explains the late musician's poetics as they relate to African philosophy, the Bible, and the problems of Babylon encountered in Jamaica as well as the rest of the world.

The author helps resolve the tension between the individual and the community as explored in Rasta poetics. His book invites readers to take a Rastafari journey, one that discovers Jamaica, social prejudice, history, and prophecy.

"In his own thoroughly original way, Tekla Mekfet evokes the largesse of spirit and innovative rhetorical performances of Walt Whitman. Whitman opened up the space of the line in American verse; he had an agile poetic persona; he was chronicler, seer, prophet. In our time, Ras Mekfet is accomplishing much the same through his vision and voice." – Professor of English Literature and Rastafari-Reggae researcher Michael Kuelker, St. Charles Community College, St. Louis, Missouri
