Publisher Description

?An important contribution to the study of Walcott?s poetry and plays.??Modernism/modernity







?Walcott, [Burnett] says, has assimilated western tradition to his own project, using it to create a new plural world of open-ended possibilities. . . . A book that should be of interest to any student of Walcott?s literature.??Times Higher Education Supplement







?This ambitious book takes in the full corpus of Walcott?plays, essays, interviews, etc., as well as the poetry?and argues the essential unity of his (humanistic) vision.??Wasafiri







?Burnett is very good on Walcott?s aesthetic and technical strategies, particularly the mythopoeic framework of his thought, and the epic form which he frequently employs.??New West Indian Guide







?Convincingly suggests that Walcott?s art radiates outward from St. Lucia to the West Indies, the Caribbean, Latin America, and the Americas, becoming an art that honors and enlarges the English language and its multiple histories and usages.??World Literature Today
