The unifying voice of this symphonic sequence of poems is that of Cariwoma, an oracular Caribbean woman, who incarnates the spirit of the islands and mainland with their Old World/New World encounters and scattered linkages of migration. The poems, like the sea that informs her voice, move freely back and forth in time with a meditational serenity. Cariwoma's reflections on landscape, myth and history; her entanglements with figures as diverse as Cassandra, Columbus and spider-god Anansi; the lives of her overseas children are all collected here in this exciting new work from Grace Nichols.
