Derek Walcott

Thanks to a blog called Poefrika, we’re reminded that Caribbean poet Derek Walcott has just turned 79, so Happy Birthday to him. Walcott is a native of the island St. Lucia. His books include Omeros, The Arkansas Testament, Prodigal, Selected Poems, and Collected Poems.  He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.  Thanks to Poefrika, too, for the loan of the photo.
