The Caribbean has produced much vigorous and exciting poetry in the 20th century. This anthology represents the wider Caribbean - that is, not just the English language writers. It covers a range of poets, from Derek Walcott and Edward Braithwaite to less acclaimed poets of the early half of the 20th century, together with exciting voices from the 1980s and 90s. The collection is intended for poetry lovers of any description, especially those with a particular interest in the Caribbean or on any college course relating to post-colonial studies, African studies, or race, gender and more
