Derek Walcott

Derek Walcott (1930–2017), awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1992, published more than forty plays and poetry collections in his lifetime, including White Egrets (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2010) and Selected Poems (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2007). For twenty-seven years he was a member of AGNI’s Advisory Board.

Louis Bourne’s interview with Walcott, “Just a Fisherman: Derek Walcott on Omeros,” appeared in AGNI 50. Walcott’s book-length poem Tiepolo’s Hound was reviewed in AGNI 52 by Diane Mehta.

Five days after Walcott’s death in March 2017, AGNI founder Askold Melnyczuk joined a conversation on the radio show On Point about the laureate’s life and poetry.

Order AGNI’s limited-edition broadside of Walcott’s “A Sea-Change.” The poem was first published in AGNI 67 and later reprinted in Harper’s and The Best American Poetry 2009.
