Collected Poems, 1948-1984Book - 1986
This book includes most of the poems in each of Derek Walcott's seven collections, as selected by the poet, and the complete text of Another Life - a narrative poem of over four thousand lines that J. D. McClatchy, writing in The New Republic, praised as "one of the best long autobiographical poems in English, with the narrative sweep, the lavish layering of details, and the mythic resonance of a certain classic." Collected Poems received the 1986 Los Angeles Times Book Prize for poetry. Book jacket.
