Bringing together previously published works and original poems from poet Edward Baugh—one of the most instantly recognizable voices in Caribbean poetry with his dry wit, poise, and elegance—these stunning poems cover a wide swath of subjects, including race, history, cricket, love, the academic life, and the consolations of natural beauty. With shrewdly analytical eye, additional works look at a modern Jamaica that at once includes the worlds of urbane polish, gated communities, religious enthusiasm, and a black majority still struggling to overcome the wrongs inflicted in the past. Above all, the subject of Baugh’s poetry is the poem, and its struggle to come into existence as a moment of clarity in a world of chaos.
