1st edition. "Literary biography of Nobel Prize-winning poet and dramatist Derek Walcott. It traces the creative contradictions in his life from colonial St Lucia, where he was part of a tiny English-speaking Protestant mulatto elite in an overwhelmingly French-Creole Roman Catholic black society, to 1999 when, a star of international literature and a symbol of cultural decolonization, he wanted to be Poet Laureate....Besides offering an approach to Walcott as a poet, dramatist, theatre director, arts critic, and teacher, the book shows how his desire to be a painter influenced his vision and the way he works." Pp.xvi/714,64 black & white photos and illustrations, owner's details to front free endpaper blacked out.. Black cloth, dustwrapper price-clipped. VG/VG.

Price = 30.00 GBP
