  • This anthology of Caribbean poetry represents the wider Caribbean - not just the English language writers
  • Covers a range of poets, from Derek Walcott and Edward Braithwaite to less acclaimed poets of the 20s, 30s, and 40s, and exciting new voices from the 80s and 90s
  • Caribbean poetry is one of the most vigorous and exciting bodies of poetry in the twentieth century

       
The Caribbean has produced one of the most vigorous and exciting bodies of poetry of the last one hundred year. The Oxford Book of Caribbean Verse is the only contemporary anthology to present the best of the English-language poetry of the region alongside selections from the poetry of both the French and Spanish Caribbean. Featuring a range of established poets from Derek Walcott to Jesus Cos Causse, Olive Senior to Aimé Césaire, as well as exciting new voices, this is a rich and challenging book.
