Boek cover Omeros van Derek Walcott Estate (Paperback)
Van de winnaaar van de Nobelprijs Literatuur 1992
A poem in five books, of circular narrative design, titled with the Greek name for Homer, which simultaneously charts two currents of history: the visible history charted in events -- the tribal losses of the American Indian, the tragedy of African enslavement -- and the interior, unwritten epic fashioned from the suffering of the individual in exile.

Boek cover Abandoning Dead Metaphors van Patricia Ismond (Paperback)
The Caribbean Phase of Derek Walcott's Poetry
Awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1992, Derek Walcott is the most important West Indian poet writing in English today, and his success has inspired many aspiring Caribbean writers. He began his career divided between his driving commitment to the revolutionary cause of his native Caribbean and his strong ties to a Western literary tradition. In his works he has studied the conflict between the heritage of European and West Indian culture. Abandoning Dead Metaphors is a critical appreciation of the works produced in Walcott's Caribbean phase (1946-1981). The poetry of this phase...

Boek cover Omeros van Derek Walcott (Paperback)
In oktober 1992 ontving de van St.-Lucia afkomstige, thans in Amerika wonende toneelschrijver en dichter Derek Walcott de Nobelprijs voor literatuur.

Boek cover Another Life van Derek Walcott (Onbekend)
In his longest and most ambitious poem, Derek Walcott reaches beyond an evocative portrayl of his native West Indies to create a moving elegy on himself and on man. The fascinating and complex matrix of the author's life is illuminated with our candor, verve, and strength. Over four thousand lines of verse are grouped into four parts. He evokes scenes of his divided childhood, in which children live in shacks while fine khaki-clothed Englishmen drink tea. He depicts the influence of three intimate friends, including his first love, Anna, on his emergence as a man and artist. He chronicles...

Boek cover Remembrance and Pantomime van Derek Walcott (Onbekend)
A Play
First produced by Joseph Papp's New York Shakespeare Festival in 1979, Remembrance is the story of an evasively eloquent retired teacher who cannot reconcile his anachronistic love of British culture with the evolution of his family and community in independent Trinidad. "A lyrical, audience-pleasing work" (Variety). Mr. Walcott is a poet, and his writing is of a quality we seldom hear in the theatre" (The New Yorker). Pantomime is a fast-paced comedy set in Tobaco. In the hope of entertaining future guests, an English hotel owner proposes that he and his black handyman work up a satire on...

Boek cover Omeros van Derek Walcott (Paperback)
Met Omeros heeft Nobelprijswinnaar Derek Walcott een van de belangrijkste literaire werken van de twintigste eeuw gecreëerd. In deze postkoloniale herschrijving van Homeros' Odyssee onderzoekt hij zowel het koloniale verleden als het complexe heden van de Caraïbische eilanden, het verdwijnen van de inheemse bevolking en de tragiek van de Afrikaanse slaven. Voor deze editie is Omeros opnieuw vertaald door Han van der Vegt. Nooit eerder verscheen het werk in zo'n prachtige tweetalige editie.
