Walcott is a genius. These early works are among the first indications that he was to be a the literary master.

nice surprise 1 Aug. 2009
By Veronica Del Valle Marengo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had to order this book for a class and was not really looking forward to reading it, however, I must say the plays are EXCELLENT. There is a reason Walcott has been so well received among the literary world. These plays are interesting and very imaginative, plus Walcott always gives your vocabulary a good work out!

Walcott is an interesting writer 27 Dec. 2008

This was required for a theatre class. To get the full gist of this play you need to research African roots, myths, and superstitions. I Enjoyed it.
Great! 15 Mar. 2014

The item arrived on time and in good condition. This collection of plays by Walcott illustrates why he won the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Very interesting 12 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I did this book for my literature class and I thought it was vey interesting. It reminded me somewhat of Ralph Ellison's "Invisible Man". This book is vey interesting and is written by a man who is basically a minority where he is from due to his religion and up bringing. The book's main character is Makak who is ashamed of his identity as a black man and idealizes the moon because it is white. Eventually he learns to accept himself as he is.
