This book provides a fresh and illuminating approach to the poetry of Derek Walcott by combinging close analysis and interpretation with a perspective that is not restricted to current post-colonial or even Caribbean readings of Walcott's work. In this respect, our volume will be useful for those readers who seek to become familiar with some of the underlying traditions and different types of poetic veins that interact in the poetry of the Caribbean Nobel Prize.
