Author's Name: Walcott Derek
Sir Derek Alton Walcott, KCSL, OBE, OCC was a Saint Lucian poet and playwright. He received the 1992 Nobel Prize in Literature. He was the University of Alberta's first distinguished scholar in residence, where he taught undergraduate and graduate writing courses.
his book includes most of the poems in each of Derek Walcott's seven collections, as selected by the poet, and the complete text of "Another Life" - a narrative poem of over four thousand lines that J.D. McClatchy, writing in "The New Republic," praised as "one of the best long autobiographical poems in English, with the narrative sweep, the lavish layering of details, and the mythic resonance of a certain classic." "Collect Poems" received the 1986 "Los Angeles Times" Book Prize for poetry.
