Summary
880-04, "Aleqa Tsega Teshale [subject of the book and author of the poetry in the book] was born in 1886, in a small village in Gojjam, Ethiopia. From these humble beginnings, he rose to become a nationally respected Ethiopian Orthodox Church scholar, and liqe kahinat (or chief of the learned) of all Simien and Begemdir provinces. He was also a major poet of Ge'ez qinei, twenty-nine of which are collected here (and translated into both Amharic and English) for the first time. Professor Edemariam Tsega [author or editor of the book], grew up in Gondar, Ethiopia, and trained as a physician at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. In 1971 he returned to Addis Ababa to work. Professor Edemariam was instrumental in establishing the first Ethiopian post-graduate programme in Internal Medicine, which went on to train many of the current generation of physicians practicing there. He was Professor of Medicine, and subsequently Dean, of the Faculty of Medicine of Addis Ababa University. After his return to Canada in 1994, he practiced and taught Internal Medicine in central Newfoundland, and subsequently at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario." --, Back cover with cataloger's observations in brackets
