Book Description

There have been many great and enduring works of literature by Caribbean authors over the last century. The Caribbean Contemporary Classics collection celebrates these deep and vibrant stories, overflowing with life and acute observations about society.

In the vast Atlantic
The sun's eye blazes over the edge of the ocean
And watches the islands in a great bow curving
From Florida down to the South American coast.

The poems and stories included in The Sun's Eye present a selection of old favourites and new discoveries, celebrating the rich, warm, vibrant and vital life in the string of islands which curve down from Florida to the South American coast. A great celebration of Caribbean culture, and testimonial to all who have felt the warmth of the Caribbean sun and the whisper of the Caribbean breeze.

Suitable for readers aged 11 and above.
