Morning, Paramin by Derek Walcott and Peter Doig
'The experience of the visual set alongside the poetic word is very powerful; both art forms are enhanced through the presence of the other' - PBS Autumn Bulletin review
Nobel Prize-winner Derek Walcott was one of the world's most eminent Caribbean poets; Peter Doig the world's most coveted painter. Through a long-standing friendship and creative affinity the two great artists have collaborated to produce a stunning full-colour book of fifty paintings and original poems in response to those paintings.
Derek Walcott was born in St Lucia, in the West Indies, in 1930. The author of many plays and books of poetry, most recently White Egrets (2010), he was awarded the Queen's Medal for Poetry in 1988, and the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1992.
