Synopsis

The Arrivants A New World Trilogy (Rights of Passage; Islands; Masks) by Edward K. Brathwaite

Here for the first time in a single volume is Edward Brathwaite's Caribbean trilogy - Rights of Passage, Masks, and Islands - a brilliant exploration of the predicament of the contemporary New World Negro. Through the tension of jazz/folk rhythm, through historical flashbacks, and excursions to Europe, New York and Africa, the poet interweaves the past and present of his Caribbean homeland - its natural beauty, its violent history, the values that sustain its people - into a vigorous and distinctive poetic statement.

Reviews

To my mind a major poem and a major work of New Literature in English....Braithwaite and Derek Walcott should be required reading in contemporary poetry. --Ashley Halpe, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka
