As a young socialist in the colony of British Guiana, Martin Carter wrote strong, vigorous poems that connect powerfully with the reader, that fire the spirit, are impossible to forget, and live on in the culture of the Caribbean. A committed freedom fighter for his people, Carter was known as the Poet of Resistance, and today is recognized as one of the great poets of the region, if not the world.
