Boek cover Oracabessa van Lorna Goodison (Paperback)
Oracabessa is a book of risky journeys, mappings and re-mappings, as the poet navigates place, history and imagination. Goodison travels to Spain and Portugal, to Canada ('Winter has landed') and back to the Hope Gardens of her childhood in Jamaica; even to the Old Testament world of Ruth and Hagar. Throughout her journeys she hymns the artists who inspire her: El Greco, John Donne, Billie Holiday, 'Miles Marley Mozart'. At the end of travel, she is, as she says, 'Still on the road to Heartease'.

Boek cover Redemption Ground van Lorna Goodison (Onbekend)
Essays and Adventures
In her first-ever collection of essays, poet and novelist Lorna Goodison interweaves the personal and political to explore themes that have occupied her working life: her love of poetry and the arts, colonialism and its legacy, racism and social justice, authenticity, and the enduring power of friendship.
