Book Summary

A compelling compilation of poetry draws from every stage in the Nobel laureate's work to present a selection that includes "A Far Cry from Africa," A City's Death by Fire," passages from Omeros, and other poetry from his later works reflecting on the Caribbean's colonial legacy, Western literary tradition, the pain of time and mortality, and the poetic craft.
