This was a collection that was hit and miss. While some poems touched the sublime, giving me great ideas and food for thought, others fell short. Nevertheless, it's a thrilling collection and one that is not to be missed, especially for those who appreciate poetry. Walcott is a creative powerhouse, pushing through poem after poem. Impressive.
