Beschreibung

The Guyanese poet Martin Carter (1927-97) was one of the foremost Caribbean writers of the 20th century and is considered a father figure of modern Caribbean poetry. Twice imprisoned by the colonial government of British Guiana in the 1950s, he became a minister in Guyana's first independent government during the 60s, representing his country at the United Nations. Disillusioned after three years, he resigned to live "simply as a poet, remaining with the people." Wise, angry, and hopeful, Carter's poetry voices a life lived in times of crisis. This helpfully annotated collection is the first of its kind and includes key essays on race, colonialism, political action and the role of the poet in a postcolonial society.

Portrait

martin carter's poetry was first published in Britain in 1954 by the leftwing publishing house Lawrence & Wishart when publication in colonial British Guiana wasn't possible, and later by New Beacon Books. He appeared in E.A. Markham's seminal anthology Hinterland (Bloodaxe, 1989) as one of the father figures of modern Caribbean poetry. Two editions of Selected Poems by Martin Carter have been published, one in Guyana in 1997 and another in Britain by Peepal Tree in 1999. Stewart Brown's critical anthology All Are Involved: The Art of Martin Carter also appeared from Peepal Tree in 1999.
