The Caribbean Voice of Derek Walcott
Greetings Afrigeneas Writers:
Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott is one of the Caribbean's greatest writers. Edit that! Mr. Walcott is one of the world's greatest writers. Reading the works of Caribbean writers reminds us of the importance of expanding our experience beyond our American culture. So does Derek Walcott.
The main url will take you COMMENTS FROM DEREK WALCOTT and Walcott's thoughts on his book "Omeros". You'll agree with some of his perspectives on race and African American culture. Others will give you pause. His words underline the cultural differences in viewpoint. Whether we agree or not, it's important for us to know how we are viewed.
A sample of his poems are linked below to SPECIAL SECTION: DEREK WALCOTT AND THE VIRGIN ISLANDS: They are beautiful.
