Publisher Description

Derek Walcott's Omeros is a poem in five books, of circular narrative design, titled with the Greek name for Homer, which simultaneously charts two currents of history: the visible history charted in events -- the tribal losses of the American Indian, the tragedy of African enslavement -- and the interior, unwritten epic fashioned from the suffering of the individual in exile.

The best

This is my favorite Walcott and Walcott is my favorite living writer, which I suppose makes this my favorite living book. This taught me how to read and write. It’s my Divine Comedy and the one book I would want to take with me beyond the grave. How’s that for hyperbolic endorsement?
