In a Green Night, Poems 1948-1960 - Derek Walcott [1962, First Edition]

£150.00

Product description

First edition published in 1962 by Jonathan Cape. The first UK collection of Derek Walcott's poetry.

Sir Derek Alton Walcott, KCSL, OBE, OCC (1930 – 2017) was a Saint Lucian poet and playwright. He received the 1992 Nobel Prize in Literature. His works include the Homeric epic poem Omeros (1990), which many critics view "as Walcott's major achievement." In addition to winning the Nobel Prize, Walcott received many literary awards over the course of his career.

One of his earlier works, exploring the Caribbean and its history in a colonialist and post-colonialist context, his collection In a Green Night: Poems 1948–1960 (1962) attracted international attention.

Complete with dust jacket, which is not price-clipped. The dust jacket does have rubbing wear on its edges and corners, but nothing too serious. A former owners name is written neatly inside the cover. The boards are bright and clean, with slightly bumped corner. A little bowed, the book doesn't quite lie closed and flat. The pages are clean with no annotations, however there are a few foxing spots on the edges of the pages.
