Love for an Island: the Collected Poems of Phyllis Shand Allfrey

Love for an Island brings together the poems of the great Dominican writer and politician for the first time. Written over four decades, the collection reflects Allfrey’s personal circumstances – both temperate and tropical. The introduction is written by Allfrey’s biographer, Professor Lisa Paravisini-Gebert.

Following a launch in Dominica last month, the University of Warwick will be holding a one-day symposium about the life and work of Phyllis Shand Allfrey on May 8 2014. All welcome. Details to follow.
