Caribbean lit links roundup

• Geoffrey Philp posts a review of Kamau Brathwaite's new book of poems, DS (2), by Vijay Seshadri:

The radical Brathwaite page is an invention born out of necessity; and its success in rendering a painful history is a testimony to both the poet’s substantial powers and to the strange, revivifying surprises that literature can offer.

• He also posts links to two clips from the documentary film Miss Lou Then and Now, which will be screened at the Historical Museum of Southern Florida on Thursday night; and a podcast of himself reading Dennis Scott's poem "Uncle Time".

• Raymond Ramcharitar writes a typically trenchant report, titled "Rapso, Romanticism and the Realpolitik", on a rapso conference at the National Museum in Port of Spain:

Art and scholarship are certainly vehicles for politics and other agendas, but it’s gotten to the point where the other agendas are primary, and art and learning are mere tropes....

• In the Jamaica Gleaner, Hugh Schultz reviews Deportee, a new play with a Jamaican theme produced by the UK-based Blue Mountain Theatre company.

• And thanks to Caribbean Free Radio for this nice link!
