Home Sweet Home: Musings on Hairoun

This page was last updated on: January 11, 2011
This volume is the third of a trilogy on the re-publication of essays, poems and short stories that appeared in the "Flambeau" magazine between 1965 and 1968 in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The first volume entitled "Search for Identity" focused on St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The second volume  entitled "Quest for Caribbean Unity" focused on the wider Caribbean as well as on philosophical and religious topics, among others. This volume entitled "Home Sweet Home" after Tim Daisy's poem of the same name, contains the poems and short stories first published in Flambeau. As before, the authors are mostly Vincentian-born but there are a few invited contributors from other Caribbean countries. The editors believe that these poems and short stories are still so compelling that re-publication is very appropriate
