Sir Derek Walcott - In Rememberance

Sir Derek Walcott - In Rememberance

Join Delia Dolor this week as she remembers the irreplaceable poet and playwright Sir Derek Walcott who passed on 17 March 2017 at the age of 87. Delia was lucky enough to know this St Lucian legend personally and sat on Sir Derek’s Nobel Laureate committee. Tune in to hear Delia recount the life of this extraordinary Nobel prize winner; a giant of West Indian literature who shone a light on Caribbean writing and projected it on the world.


Hear the inspiration for the poet who gave us Omeros and the playwright who penned Dream on Monkey Mountain. In Delia’s last recorded interview with Sir Derek, they spoke about inspiration, excellence and the “yes, why yes” moment. Tune in to celebrate and remember this remarkable artist only on The Dolor Factor.
