Dub Wise

by Geoffrey Philp
£8.99   paperback  Peepal Tree Press Ltd (2010)

Dub Wise by Geoffrey Philp

"Without losing the joy of play or the play of the rhythms, Dub Wise celebrates the burdens and delights of love, friendships and the responsibility of being at home in the world. Geoffrey Philp’s new book is witty, playful, gracious and, yes, wise. An enjoyable read from beginning to end."
(Olive Senior)
"The voice now distinctive, recognizable, the tone clear & clipped & ‘skitter’ [the ‘something like music’], the stanzas running into each separate other, as they shd, like the human voice does. Also a new strong sense of place (Third World Miami and its Spanish - and Kgn of course – esp from Mountain View to the Sea), family & history (welcome the Seminole).
Above all, there is the continuing infolding of a ‘Jamaica Tradition’ as being established in the voices of Morris & Dawes, plus also the acknowledgment of McNeill, Baugh, Mikey Smith & Garvey, and the NL of Jean Binta Breeze. And Derek Walcott (where he grounds, in a way, the Morris-Dawes Ja Tradition) in ‘Beyond Mountain View’"
