Aime Cesaire and Derek Walcott

By Jason Allen, Dominic Davies and University of Oxford. English Faculty


In this audio podcast from the University of Oxford, Jason Allen offers a comparative discussion of two important Caribbean poets and playwrights, Aime Cesaire and Derek Walcott, to emphasize the impact of Caribbean literature upon the postcolonial world. By using biographical and historical detail to support his analysis of some of Cesaire and Walcott's key texts, Allen offers insight into what it means to be a Caribbean writer - looking back to a colonial past, and forward to a global future
