About the Author

Since 1961, Derek Walcott has been director of the Trinidad Theatre Workshop, as well as its chief playwright. The appearance of his first collection of plays, which has had several printings since 1970, was a literary event. Dream on Monkey Mountain won the Obie Award for a Distinguished Foreign Play, when produced in New York in 1971, and was deemed "a masterpiece" by Edith Oliver in The New Yorker.

Reviews

"Dream on Monkey Mountain is a poem in dramatic form or a drama in poetry, and poetry is rare in the modern theatre. Every line of it plays...there is a sound psychological basis for every action and emotion." --Edith Oliver, The New Yorker
