A Caribbean Dozen

by John Agard and Grace Nichols

The work of thirteen Caribbean poets is included in this rich collection with illustrations which truly enhance the words on the page. The poets each share 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 book, try Pamela Mordecai’s light-hearted ‘Remember’ and then turn the page to discover her moving ‘Lament of an Arawak Child’.
