Deconstructing Decolonisation: Victor Questel’s Collected Poems

Written by Ben Etherington for New Caribbean on Monday, May 15th, 2017

It has taken a long time for Questel’s Collected Poems to appear. It was published last year by the Leeds-based Peepal Tree Press as part of their invaluable Caribbean Modern Classic series. Peepal Tree is a crucially important independent publisher of Caribbean and Caribbean diasporic literature. In bringing together Questel’s three out-of-print collections, they again have enriched our capacity to navigate the lesser known currents of the Caribbean literary world.
