His unique voice in poetry, drama and criticism is shaped by his position at the crossroads between Caribbean, British and American culture and by his interest in hybrid identities and diaspora. Edward Baughs Derek Walcott analyses and evaluates Walcotts entire career over the last fifty years.

Baugh guides the reader through the continuities and differences of theme and style in Walcotts poems and plays. Walcott is an avowedly Caribbean writer, acutely conscious of his culture and colonial heritage, but he has also made a lasting contribution to the way we read and value the western literary tradition. This comprehensive 2006 survey considers each of Walcotts published books, offering a guide for students, scholars and readers of Walcott.

Students of Caribbean and postcolonial studies will find this a perfect introduction to this important writer.
