Taking Words for a Walk : New and Selected Poems, Paperback / softback Book

Taking Words for a Walk : New and Selected Poems Paperback / softback

Edited by Jeremy Poynting


Ambition, rebellion, loss of innocence, memory, love, death and spiritual yearning are just some of the themes these poems explore.

With an underlying seriousness leavened by wit and a self-deprecating humor, this collection engages in a dialogue that is both intensely Jamaican and universal.

Featuring free verse, rhymed quatrains, haikus, and villanelles in patois and standard English this book also explores the dynamics, personal and social, of being a white poet in a black country."
