4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poems of Mervyn Morris, one of the most resourceful West Indian poets, are economical, witty and humane. Aware at each moment of the processes of writing, Morris makes use of the diverse linguistic resources of his native Jamaica, with poems in international standard English, Jamaican Creole and a range of hybrid idioms. The variations inflect his explorations of love and lust, time and memory, the relationship between private consciousness and commitment to the wider world of history, politics and art. His poems frequently suggest the tension inherent in moments of choice."--BOOK JACKET
