Just a few more poems and I’ll finally, conclusively be done with Montale. This is the pile that’s waiting for me next: plays and poetry by the Saint Lucian Derek Walcott.
************
Derek Walcott was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1992
“for a poetic oeuvre of great luminosity, sustained by a historical vision, the outcome of a multicultural commitment”.
************
Unlike the poetry that I’ve been reading recently, Walcott writes directly in English, so I’m excited to be reading works that haven’t lost their force, flavor, and nuance after translation. It will also be interesting since I’ll be reading poetry by someone who actually lives in the Caribbean as I am reading novels and stories by García Marquez set in Central America. (Trivia: Walcott also paints and has done most of the book jacket artwork himself.)
************
The constant back and forth is my way of refreshing the mind, keeping it from going stale. Soon I’ll also be posting books by Philippine poets, writing in Filipino, as part of my many reading projects (not just because August is “Buwan ng Wika”/“Language Month”) and my set of books on Philippine folk literature. And yes, I’m still reading through Bienvenido Lumbera’s “Balaybay: Mga Tulang Lunot at Manibalang” (every poem there is a revelation).
