Selected Poems of Derek Walcott free pdf This new "Selected Poems" offers for the first time a portable and lucidly ordered retrospect of the fertile career of Derek Walcott, spanning six decades and drawing on twelve collections. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1992, Walcott has, in the words of Seamus Heaney, 'moved with gradually deepening confidence to found his own poetic domain, independent of the tradition he inherited yet not altogether orphaned from it.' The new "Selected Poems", edited by Edward Baugh, provides a map of a domain that is at once parish and universe.
