What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “Although you may not be a fan of his poems (I’m not particularly), I do love this book as it gives a sense of the poet finding his way.  Compelling stuff.”

Ethan: “Like Whitman, Derek Walcott is poet connected to his homeland. However, in this instance, the home land is not The United States, but rather Saint Lucia, and the resulting verse is fantastic.”
