Set in Barbados, the poems in Sun of the Son were awarded the Corson Bishop Poetry Prize, the Dorothy Sugarman Poetry Prize and the American Academy of Poets Prize at Cornell University. The voices in this collection incorporate the cultures and creoles of the islands, the remembrance and continuity of Africa, the influence of European and American writers, and mythologies from Old and New Worlds. Like many Caribbean poets, the writing is assimilative and embracing, yet uniquely native. Vernon L. Jackman’s poetry is a vivid and lyrical diction, as inflected by Brathwaite, Walcott and Lamming, as it is by Pound, Elliot and Williams. Praised by poets and critics, these are poems whose music and images are as striking as the characters that inhabit and overshadow them.
