This is evident in the poem Country Dawns in Country Dawns and City Lights, where an extended tutorial celebrates creation as a boy enters life by deflowering a virgin. Virginity here is symbolic of purity and uncorrupted life of the African before the advent of colonisation.

Zimunya's poetry deals with the beauty of Zimbabwe, but also with its poverty and history of suffering, and with urban alienation from spiritual heritage. Most of his published work is in English, but he also writes in Shona. Zimunya began publishing poems when he was still at school, in literary journals like Two-Tone and Chirimo. Perfect Poise (1993) and Selected Poems (1995) are collections that contain both the lyricism of his earlier work and the cynical perspective of the critic.

In M. Zimunya (E., Country dawns and city lights. Harare: Longman) who views the rural African society as both overshadowed and threatened by city life, a place which symbolises a civilisation whose capacity to brutalise seems infinite, I argue that both the rural and urban African people have the capacity to ‘resist’ the metropole culture creating a new identity or a system of relations and representations which is not fixed, but dynamic. and continually recomposes and redefines itself. Keywords: cultural identities; landscape; hybridity; indigenes; metropole.
