Omeros by Derek Walcott

Lover of Epics, January 4, 2011

Nobel Prize Winner Derek Walcott's "Omeros" is a stunning epic poem set in the Caribbean. The beauty of the poetry is its finest feature -- the writing and rhyme are deftly and creatively accomplished. With a complicated, inventive wit, characters named Achille, Hector, and, of course, Helen, begin the story. Before it ends, the tale ranges the world, although the emphasis remains on Western peoples.
