DEREK WALCOTT As a poet

         Derek Walcott is an outstanding lyric poet of the West Indies writing in English. He is one of the three greatest poets writing in the English language in the world today, the other two being Seamus Heaney and Jorie Graham. His father was a Bohemian; that is a person, who lives and behaves in an informal way that is considered typical of artists and writers. His mother was a teacher, who had been a real inspiration to Derek to compose poetry, not only that but she really encouraged him to read poetry of good poets of the world and he did it just like a prayer.
