A Far Cry From Africa

Derek Walcott

Now, I think I understand
Added by: Samuel Biagetti
This poem perfectly addresses questions I had had about how post-colonial writers can feel such abhorrence for the long injustice of imperialism, and yet express themselves in a language they wouldn't have learned if not for that imperialism. The agonizing ambivalence in the last stanza is very illuminating to me.
