COME BACK TO ME MY LANGUAGE Press Reviews

Eloquent... In Chamberlin's view, memory and historical suffering are inseparable from the aesthetic choices poets make. He brings his very substantial knowledge to the case. The Hudson Review Has got to become required reading for all who would wish not only to understand the centrality of language, oral and scribal, to the exercise of the West Indian creative imagination but also to better grasp the seminal role of the literary imagination in the history and existential reality of an entire people still in the process of 'becoming'. Rex Nettleford, artistic director, National Dance Theater Company of Jamaica
