Completed with the enthusiastic support and participation of the late Laureate, Jean Antoine-Dunne’s lively and enriching study begins in a recognition of how important film has been in the whole of Derek Walcott’s career. It is not merely that Derek Walcott wrote a number independent film scripts such as The Rig, The Haitian Earth and To Die for Grenada and wrote film treatments of several of his plays such as for Marie Laveau, Ti Jean and O Babylon, and also a film treatment of his poetic epic Omeros, but that the whole of Walcott’s work, whether poetry, drama or painting, is infused with the sense of the filmic.
Dr Jean Antoine-Dunne is a Senior Lecturer in Literatures in English at the University of the West Indies, St Augustine. She delivered the Walcott Nobel Lecture in 2006, and has published widely on contemporary Irish and Caribbean writing.
