Synopsis

Under the Moon & Over the Sea: A Collection of Poetry from the Caribbean by John Agard, Grace Nichols

This is an award-winning collection of poetry vividly evoking the experience of living in the Caribbean - and of leaving for other lands. This prestigious anthology, which won the 2003 CLPE Poetry Award, conjures up the sights and sounds, tastes and tales of the Caribbean; the experience of living there - and of leaving for other lands. A companion to the acclaimed A Caribbean Dozen , this book contains more than fifty poems by over thirty poets, including John Agard, Grace Nichols, James Berry, Valerie Bloom and Benjamin Zephaniah.
