Summary:
The Caribbean produced what is arguably the most vigorous and exciting body of poetry of the twentieth century.
In The Oxford Book of Caribbean Verse, Stewart Brown and Mark McWatt have come together to produce the only anthology of Caribbean poetry available that represents all of the Caribbean--not only the English language writers. The book features a range of poets, from Derek Walcott and Edward Braithwaite to Jesus Cos Causse, and from Olive Senior to Una Marson. It covers less acclaimed poets of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, as well as exciting newer voices from the 80s and 90s. Poetry lovers of any description will find this a rich and satisfying book.
The Oxford Book of Caribbean Verse offers a new and original context in which to explore the unique poetry of the Caribbean. This rich and satisfying collection will enchant, entertain, and inform anyone with an interest in the art of poetry.
