Book Description

Jacinth Henry-Martin delivers a compelling series of poems in Dancing in Bondage. Composed with great zest and conviction, the book is literally a tribute to all those who have succeeded in discarding physical, mental and emotional shackles to metaphorically dance and celebrate life in the face of all its challenges. The poems are liberating and vindicating and paint pictures with words about all aspects of life.

Jacinth Henry Martin is a former Minister of Information, Culture Youth and Sports of St Kitts and Nevis. A former national calypso queen, she represented her country through her writings at the Caribbean Storytelling Festival, CARIFESTA VI and VII and at Heritage fest.
