The work of thirteen Caribbean poets is included in this rich collection. Each poet shares a childhood experience with the reader as an introduction to their poems and there are biographical notes on each at the end of the book. To taste the impressive variety in this volume, try Pamela Mordecai's light-hearted 'Remember' and then turn a couple of pages to discover her moving 'Lament of an Arawak Child'.
