    1. The first reading is to get a feel for the poetry and its language.The remaining readings (infinite times) will be to savor and seep deeply into its language.

    6. This poetry collection is very similar to Goodison's Oracabessa. In comparison of the two Table of Contents, the poems' titles are the same except for Oracabessa's extra chapter. The Poet Laureate of Jamaica Mervyn Morris on YouTube notes the spirituality of Goodison's poetry and her 'seamless' sliding between Standard English and Jamaican Patwah. My own reading of this volume a few times notes that Goodison brings a sacredness to the content. And, in the last poem "Canto I", she adapts Dante's [...]
