Under Basil Leaves: An Anthology of Poems

Front Cover
Hansib, 2010 - Jamaica - 130 pages
In her debut collection of poetry, Paulette Ramsay addresses the 'unsanctioned' layers of experience that are often hidden behind social codes and the cloak of respectability. Her layered and subtle wit runs like a thread through poems that cover a diverse range of subject matters - childhood memories, politics, religion, women's concerns, life, death and love. Ramsay's ironic, often hilarious visions illuminate the everyday from a multitude of fresh perspectives guaranteed to entertain and delight.
