and Poetry" is a study of the contribution made by Ugandan women poets and the extent to which these women writers have advocated for human rights beyond and above womena??s rights in their society. The study focuses on the works of two distinguished
women poets a?? Susan Kiguli's "The African Saga" and Mildred Kiconco Barya's "Men Eat Chocolates but They dona??t Say" and "The Price of Memory: after the tsunami". This writer identifies the human rights
concerns addressed and lessons learnt; examines the effectiveness of the stylistic devices used by the poets and makes interesting conclusions regarding human rights advocacy in Kiguli and Baryaa??s poetry. Although the two poets differ in style, language use and presentation
, the study establishes that their contribution to the field of poetry and development of their society reaches well beyond the confines of womena??s rights and cuts across almost all universal human rights concerns.
