Sonnets of the Caribbean

Research output: Other contribution


In the hands of writers like William Shakespeare and Sir Thomas Wyatt, the sonnet is most famously linked with the expression of romantic love. However, for some poets, this popular form holds radically different associations. This article will explore how the contemporary Afro–Guyanese poet John Agard uses the sonnet as a vehicle to critique and bring new perspectives on colonialism and the British Empire.
