Adrian Augier’s latest collection teems with the rich imagery of Caribbean life, politics and social history. It is also a poignant, faithful exploration of the human condition across several generations, at home and abroad.
For more than three decades, Augier’s work has been chronicling an evolving Caribbean culture, sometimes in jubilant celebration, sometimes with a deep sense of loss. His voice is passionate and disturbingly prophetic, delving into issues of identity and ownership against a background of irrevocable change in the landscape of St. Lucia and the wider Caribbean.
Adrian Augier is an award-winning poet and theatre producer from St Lucia. He is the 2010 Caribbean Laureate for Arts and Letters, as awarded by the ANSA Foundation. His previous collections of poetry include Out of Darkness (1979), Genesis (1980), Of Many Voices (1981), Tears & Triumphs (1982) and BridgeMaker (2001).
