Twice imprisoned by the colonial government of British Guiana in the 1950s, he became a minister in Guyanas first independent government during the 60s, representing his country at the United Nations. Disillusioned after three years, he resigned to live simply as a poet, remaining with the people. Wise, angry, and hopeful, Carters poetry voices a life lived in times of crisis. This helpfully annotated collection is the first of its kind and includes key essays on race, colonialism, political action and the role of the poet in a postcolonial society.
