    DescriptionGardening in the Tropics contains a rich Caribbean world in poems offered to readers everywhere. Olive Senior's rich vein of humour can turn wry and then sharp in satire of colour-consciousness, class-consciousness and racism. But her predominant tone is the verbal equivalent of a pair of wide-open arms.

    'Gardening in the Tropics' contains a rich Caribbean world in poems offered to readers everywhere, but with an especial nod to Canadian readers. This Caribbean world thrives in a Canada that is felt only briefly in the volume (as in an image of colourful shoes against snow), just enough to suggest a potential meeting between northern and tropical climates and ways.
