Summary

The beat and language of reggae arose from the Jamaican countryside and the sidewalks of Kingston, but they’re basic for the poets represented in Wheel and Come Again. This remains true even though the poets’ personal worlds range from the street to the university and from the tropics to Toronto, New York and London. Wheel and Come Again features works by 28 poets of Caribbean origin; some remain in the islands, and others have migrated to North America and Britain. The book includes works by Canadian poets such as Rachel Manley, Afua Cooper, Lillian Allen, Olive Senior, and Clifton Joseph; UK poets including Linton Kwesi Johnson and Jean "Binta" Breeze; US writers Rohan B. Preston, Fred d’Aguiar, and others; and Island poets such as Anthony MacNeill and Lorna Goodison.
