There are vivid glimpses of a prewar Jamaican childhood - of sexual discovery under a billiard table and of the rude ingratitude of a goat saved from dissection in the school biology lab.

The long sequence, Goodbye Aristotle, So Long America, explores the years of study at a Jesuit university in America and the making both of a lifetimes values and of the sense of irony which has made it possible to live with them. Other poems reflect on the experience of ageing, of increasing vulnerability, but also of an increased appreciation for what sustains human relationships through time.Jamaica is present in these poems as a place of aching natural beauty, but whose violent human energies can only be viewed with an ambivalent love and fear.
