Nearly Ten Years Later (for Grenada) – Poetry by Merle Collins

December 7, 2010

This video was a quick piece I had to put together for my Dynamics of Caribbean Cultures course at University of the West Indies St. Augustine Trinidad. Pardon the imovie edits…still trying to get Final Cut on my new laptop. ** the video may be a bit dark on windows computers **

This video is a response to a rather wordy prompt from my professor…

“Since life unfolds temporally and spatially within socio-cultural and geopolitical context, every engagement with a literary text can be read as a cultural engagement. Take this statement and apply to a text of choice.”

My text of choice, a poem written in 1992 by Merle Collins : Nearly Ten Years Later (for Grenada).

Thanks for watching.
