About this title


This near-definitive study sets a new standard for the kind of meticulous scholarship that Nobel laureate Derek Walcott's poetry deserves. "Another Life", Walcott's masterpiece of autobiography in verse. (D.J. McClatchy, writing in "The New Republic", called it 'one of the best long autobiographical poems in English, with the narrative sweep, the lavish layering of details, and the mythic resonance of a certain classic'), is an ideal point of entry into Walcott's work. The two-hundred pages of detailed notes and commentary offered in this annotated edition - drawing to a great extent on unpublished sources - provide an invaluable resource for both teachers and students.Equally important, this book will enhance the accessibility of Walcott's poetry and personal history for all readers. This near-definitive study sets a new standard for the kind of meticulous scholarship that Nobel laureate Derek Walcott's poetry deserves, at the same time that it enhances the accessibility of Walcott's history and poetry for the general reader.

Nobel laureate Derek Walcott began writing poetry as a boy, and by the age of thirty-five had gained international recognition for his work. Another Life, first published in 1973, took him seven years to complete. Edward Baugh is emeritus professor of English at the University of the West Indies, Mona. Extensively published as both a poet and a scholar, he has been writing about Derek Walcott's work since the 1970s. Colbert Nepaulsingh is professor of Latin American and Caribbean studies at the University of Albany. His research ranges from the literature of medieval Spain to the culture of the Anglophone Caribbean.
