Lorna Goodison is endowed with the resources of her traditions: the Afro-Caribbean and the European. Her poems are politically illuminating because of the ways in which she celebrates this dual inheritance, how each subject and theme can choose an appropriate idiom. Rooted though the poems are in certain elected landscapes, the poet finds her inflections in the interplay between languages and occasions.
