Collected poems : with "These Collapsing Times": remembering Q by Victor D Questel( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poems in this collection move from the orality and bitter punning of Prelude that deal with the disappointments of the post colonial nation and fall-out from the Black Power revolution of 1970; his sceptical investigations of faith, particularly the family resonances of Spiritual Baptist ritual in Near Mourning Ground; and arrive at the severe and stoical poems of Hard Stares that look at himself, domesticity and political corruption. Questel, as Gordon Rohlehr's exceptional tribute and close reading of the poems shows, was an unsparing observer of his own and his region's failings. His world is frequently a dark one, but the poems are intense with life, visionary in language and bracingly free from sentimentality or self-pity."

Horizons : the life and times of Edric Connor 1913-1968 : an autobiography by Edric Connor( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This autobiography of one of the Caribbean's most multifaceted personalities records Edric Connor's early life from the idyllic setting of Peter Hill, Mayaro to his migration to Port of Spain and his departure to England where he was able to carve out successful careers as singer, stage and screen actor, radio broadcaster and film-maker." "Connor's Trinidad years are best distinguished by his passionate advocacy for and promotion of the local folk at the source of a genuine and legitimate cultural form. Some of the most rewarding moments of his autobiography are Connor's joyful evocation of the communal solidarity which defined Trinidad rural life at the turn of the twentieth century." "Connor's text has been reproduced in its original version except for minimal editing and the addition of some explanatory notes by Prof. Bridget Brereton, who along with Prof. Gordon Rohlehr also provide an Introduction to the Connor life story within the social, cultural, and historical context of early twentieth-century Trinidad and Tobago. Intimate portraits of Connor's life, by his former wife Pearl Connor-Mogotsi in her essay, My Life with Edric Connor and in George Lamming's Foreword, round off this complete portrait of the life, times and achievements of a Caribbean cultural icon."--book jacket
