AUTHOR

Walcott, Derek

SUMMARY

"It's a heroic, monumental undertaking -- and not surprisingly, St. Lucia- born Walcott summons the ghost of Shakespeare in his epigraphs, echoes and metaphors. Walcott's lines weave in and out of blank verse as easily as an old man walks in and out of memory...Commenting about his plays to the Caribbean Quarterly in 1968, Walcott said, 'I hope that there is a moment, or there are moments, when the thing becomes a poetry on stage; and I would prefer to eventually write a play which would be a poem.' If so, Walcott has hit the target. The HAITIAN TRILOGY is like the great hull of a lost ship, its crushed timber shot through with starlight. And what lies at the bottom of the seas it once sailed is the inevitability of time, the inevitability of history to crush kings and the certitude of conquerors, the inevitability of remorse for things done and undone -- and, as always, the ability of gold to betray men."Walcott, Derek is the author of 'Haitian Trilogy', published 2002 under ISBN 9780374528133 and ISBN 0374528136.
