Give the Ball to the Poet is an exciting new anthology of Caribbean poetry with great appeal for all ages. Many well-known and loved Caribbean poets are here - famous names such as John Agard, Grace Nichols and Benjamin Zephaniah - as are a number of lively new voices. With an emphasis on the music of Caribbean poetry as it is spoken, this collection ranges from the light-hearted and lyrical to the serious and thought-provoking. Jane Ray's ravishing illustrations complement the poetry and bring the Caribbean to life. The anthology features some outstanding poetry on sporting themes; one of several works specially commissioned for the book is a tribute to Usain Bolt by Mervyn Morris. Give the Ball to the Poet distils the essence of a vibrant range of traditions in a celebration of human struggle, endeavour and achievement.
