AUTHOR

Walcott, Derek, Baugh, Edward

SUMMARY

Drawing from every stage of the Nobel laureate's career, Derek Walcott'sSelected Poemsbrings together famous pieces from his early volumes, including "A Far Cry from Africa" and "A City's Death by Fire," with passages from the celebratedOmerosand selections from his latest major works, which extend his contributions to reenergizing the contemporary long poem. Here we find all of Walcott's essential themes, from grappling with the Caribbean's colonial legacy to his conflicted love of home and of Western literary tradition; from the wisdom-making pain of time and mortality to the strange wonder of love, the natural world, and what it means to be human. We see his lifelong labor at poetic crafts, his broadening of the possibilities of rhyme and meter, stanza forms, language, and metaphor. Edited and with an introduction by the Jamaican poet and critic Edward Baugh, this volume is a perfect representation of Walcott's breadth of work, spanning almost half a century.Walcott, Derek is the author of 'Selected Poems', published 2007 under ISBN 9780374531119 and ISBN 0374531110.
