Former Poet Laureate of Jamaica Mervyn Morris presents half a century of poetry with an intense musicality in Peelin Orange: Collected Poems, reinventing how universals can inhere in the local, the incarnation in a Caribbean setting.

Ansyen Powèt Loreya Jamayik la, Mervyn Morris, ap prezante yon mwatye syèk pwezi avèk anpil son mizik nan Peelin Orange: Collected Poems, ki montre nou jan tousa ki inivèsèl nan lavi a kapab vin rantre nan tousa ki lokal, e jwenn plas yo nan Karayib la. City of Bone, yon liv Kwame Dawes, ap plen kè nou ak tèt nou avèk pwòp mizik pa li, depi nan tanbou, pase pa rege, “blues, ak djaz, rive nan chante levanjil. Se powèt, womansye, ak otè pyès teyat Geoffrey Philp k ap anime rankont sa a.
