4 BRATHWAITE, EDWARD Islands.
London Oxford University Press, 1969 Hard Cover Very Good 
Xii,113 pages, cloth, very good. From the publisher: "The third part of Edward Brathwaite's trilogy of poems about the Negro's encounter with the New World interweaves the past and present of his Caribbean homeland." From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Edward Kamau Brathwaite (born 1930) is a Barbadian writer, poet and dramatist; his poetry explores the African and Caribbean roots of his country and his people. The "national language" that he proposes is a new type of poetry linked with those themes. Born in Bridgetown, Barbados, he was born to humble parents, and he attended many schools, including Harrison College, Pembroke College, Cambridge, and Sussex University. In 1955, he travelled to Ghana, shortly after independence, where he worked for the Ministry of Education until 1962. Then he moved to Kingston where he taught history at the University of the West Indies and established Savacou the journal of the Caribbean Artists Movement (1966-1970): he was its secretary-general. Since the 1970s he has taught at many United States schools and published many scholarly works. Presently, he teaches comparative literature at New York University. In 1968, he received a Ph.D. from the University of Sussex, and in 1994, the International Neustadt Prize for Literature. His travels gave him knowledge about African culture and traditions and its pre-colonial identity, which then he decided to use in his poetry."
