Oracabessa

Lorna Goodison

Carcanet Collection  

Oracabessa is a book of risky journeys, mappings and re-mappings, as the poet navigates place, history and imagination. Goodison travels to Spain and Portugal, to Canada (‘Winter has landed’) and back to the Hope Gardens of her childhood in Jamaica; even to the Old Testament world of Ruth and Hagar. Throughout her journeys she hymns the artists who inspire her: El Greco, John Donne, Billie Holiday, ‘Miles Marley Mozart’. At the end of travel, she is, as she says, ‘Still on the road to Heartease’.
