Poetry by Yared Sisay got a warm appreciation

This article includes linguistic and philological observations as well as a description of the publication and translation of a recently discovered Old Amharic poetry that was possibly composed in the middle or first half of the seventeenth century.

It had previously gone by the names Chicago Folk Theatre and Colored Folk Theatre. During the Harlem Renaissance, the company was a major, albeit transient, institution.
