New Caribbean Poetry: An Anthology

by Edited by Kei Miller
£12.95   paperback  Carcanet Press Ltd (2007)

New Caribbean Poetry: An Anthology by Edited by Kei Miller The Caribbean is producing some of the most innovative and sophisticated poets in world literature today. This anthology turns the spotlight on eight New Caribbean poets.
 
Between them, they represent the range of Caribbean identities and experiences: They are black, white, Indian and in between. Their first language is French, Spanish and English. They are home-bodies. They are world travellers. They represent all kinds of diaspora - from the islander who sought and made home in a foreign land, to the foreigner who sought and made home in the islands.
 
The common thread between them is that they are all very good, and all are committed to the magical possibilities of language.

"These captivating poets write from the heart with poems which range from the spare and haunting to the risky and experimental. There are surprises, there is beauty, there are pleasures to be discovered, there is much to be enjoyed."
(Bernardine Evaristo)
