Teaching Caribbean Poetry will inform and inspire readers with a love for, and understanding of, the dynamic world of Caribbean poetry. This unique volume sets out to enable secondary English teachers and their students to engage with a wide range of poetry, past and present; to understand how histories of the Caribbean underpin the poetry and relate to its interpretation; and to explore how Caribbean poetry connects with environmental issues.

Written by literary experts with extensive classroom experience, this lively and accessible book is immersed in classroom practice, and examines:

* popular aspects of Caribbean poetry, such as performance poetry;

* different forms of Caribbean language;

* the relationship between music and poetry;

* new voices, as well as well-known and distinguished poets, including John Agard (winner of the Queen's Medal for Poetry, 2012), Kamau Brathwaite, Lorna Goodison, Olive Senior and Derek Walcott;

* the crucial themes within Caribbean poetry such as inequality, injustice, racism, `othering', hybridity, diaspora and migration;

* the place of Caribbean poetry on the GCSE/CSEC and CAPE syllabi, covering appropriate themes, poetic forms and poets for exam purposes.

Throughout this absorbing book, the authors aim to combat the widespread `fear' of teaching poetry, enabling teachers to teach it with confidence and enthusiasm and helping students to experience the rewards of listening to, reading, interpreting, performing and writing Caribbean poetry.
