  • Derek Walcott

    Derek Walcott was born in St Lucia, in the West Indies, in 1930. The author of many plays and books of poetry, most recently White Egrets (2010), he was awarded the Queen's Medal for Poetry in 1988, and the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1992. He died in 2017.

“A virtuoso pairing of two global artists who have made homes in the Caribbean: Walcott’s celebratory, limpid poems are each inspired by one of Doig’s painterly, fluid, elusive, enticing paintings, from “The Architect’s House by the Ravine” in 1991 to last year’s hallucinatory self-portait “Night Studio”. A gorgeous, intelligent, romantic, affordable treat.”
- Jackie Wullschlager, The Financial Times Books of the Year
