Part I of the collection pays homage to the beauty of his native St. Lucia in a praise song to Helen. e collection proceeds to chronicle the development of the nation from the post colonial era to independence and ends with the protest poetry genre which captures the problems of developing Caribbean societies in the twenty- rst century. He weaves a ne tapestry of Greek mythology, and religious imagery infused with Creole folklore and poignant social commentary. e collection explores timeless themes of West Indian identity, independence, neocolonialism, politics and modernization. His use of poetic form with its strong emphasis on repetition, the cadence of the speaking voice and the powerful protest poetry genre re ect the pulsating rhythms of the society and the poet's undeniable passion for his art and the Caribbean community.- Contributed jointly by: Laurima Jacobs Assistant Lecturer, Department of Language and Communication, Sir Arthur Lewis Community College Ria St. Ange Bachellor of Arts (English Literature) MA Human Resource Management, Barbados
