Meer info This Longman textbook for schools covers 20th century poets from Guyana to the Bahamas, and is divided into three sections: the first includes all Caribbean poetry that had been set for the "CXC English B examination" up to 1992, grouped by theme; the second section contains more poems, largely by the same authors, and grouped as before; and the third section has school-type questions for each of the poems in the first section (some of the questions refer to poems in the second section).

In addition there is a 20-page introduction by Kenneth Ramchand (one of the two editors, if you can figure that out from the garbled Goodreads listing!) The bulk of this is a detailed analysis of Derek Walcott's "A Sea-Chantey", which provides excellent insight into Caribbean poetry: its themes, its imagery, its casual, unstructured use of rhyme and rhythm.

Absorbing this analysis, and then working slowly through the book, I feel that there is a distinctive character to Caribbean poetry, coarser than British, more naturally rhythmic than American - a character that I am delighted to find I identify with
