Summary: “The visionary poet’s epic, has a title that offers to us now the most eloquent way of speaking of those who cross land and sea for another country. Brathwaite experimented all his life with creoles, African languages, and Englishes, to create a rich sound mix for his sumptuous and ambitious historical tapestry.” Marina Warner
