Abstract

Thanks to his books and albums released from the mid 1970s on, Johnson is considered a pioneer of Dub poetry, a definition he coined for poems performed over reggae rhythms. The extremely oral nature of his phrasing also identifies him as a seminal figure for the development of both vernacular arts and Black British performance poetry.
