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.
