Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Caribbean verse is among the most diverse and exciting in the world, encompassing work from nations as different as Haiti, Trinidad, Jamaica, Dominica, Puerto Rico, Martinique, and Cuba. In The New Oxford Book of Caribbean Verse, Stewart Brown and Mark McWatt offer the only anthology of Caribbean poetry that represents all of the Caribbean - not just the English language writers, but the Spanish and French poets as well. The book features a range of writers from Claude McKay and Derek Walcott, to Jesus Cos Causse and Aimé Césaire, to Julia Alvarez and Julia De Burgos. It covers acclaimed and lesser-known poets of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, as well as exciting newer voices from the 80s and 90s. Poetry lovers will find this a rich and satisfying book, offering an original context in which to explore the unique poetry of this region. Now available with a stylish, contemporary look, this rich reissue will enchant, entertain, and inform.
