Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

'Gardening in the Tropics' contains a rich Caribbean world in poems offered to readers everywhere, but with an especial nod to Canadian readers. This Caribbean world thrives in a Canada that is felt only briefly in the volume (as in an image of colourful shoes against snow), just enough to suggest a potential meeting between northern and tropical climates and ways.

Beautiful poetry. Gives a good look at what is defined as Caribbean writing. I would recommend that anyone reading this should also read Kamau Brathwaite's essay "Nation Language." It would give you a good understanding of just how much colonialism affected Caribbean language and writing.
