"Visual surprise is natural in the Caribbean... it comes with the landscape, and faced with its beauty, the sigh of history dissolves" ~

~ Derek Alton Walcott, (born 23 January 1930) is a Saint Lucian poet, playwright, writer and visual artist who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1992 and the T. S. Eliot Prize in 2011 for White Egrets. His works include the Homeric epic Omeros. Robert Graves wrote that Walcott "handles English with a closer understanding of its inner magic than most, if not any, of his contemporaries”.~
