9780435988173: The Heinemann Book of Caribbean Poetry (Heinemann Caribbean Writers Series)

West Indians, as Ian McDonald comments, "write poetry as well as they play cricket" and Heinemann's anthology is the most comprehensive and up-to-date selection of contemporary Caribbean poetry, including major names like Derek Walcott, John Agard, and Merle Collins, alongside new poets of the region. This collection is an invaluable academic selection and will provide a fine introduction for the general reader interested in the lyricism of Caribbean poetry.
