'a look at the future of Caribbean poetry'

Written by Eric Doumerc for eric-doumerc.com on Thursday, September 16, 2021

...this collection is not a quiet, nostalgic and backward-looking reflection on a lost Eden, and Lee’s voice is very powerful in its denunciation of the many problems plaguing the Caribbean (and the wider world) today.

Lee brings together a great Caribbean fraternity to help him make his point, from Derek Walcott to Dionne Brand, from Aimé Césaire to Garth St Omer, and manages to tackle Caribbean-wide themes and subjects.

This is not a blast from the past, but a look at the future of Caribbean poetry.
