Derek Walcott died Friday, March 17

Sad news for the literary world: Derek Walcott passed away on Friday at the age of 87.

He was a successful poet and playwright. In 1992, he had received the Nobel Prize in Literature.
Read an article about his life and accomplishments in the New Yorker.

Likely his most anthologized poem is Love After Love.
Let’s take a few moments and read this wonderful poem.

With love…
