Happy Birthday Derek Walcott!

Our beloved contributor Derek Walcott turns eighty-five this Thursday, and we celebrate by opening up his past work in Little Star Weekly as our Weekly Special!

• An early poem revisited in his new collected poems, introduced by editor Glyn Maxwell
• An encounter with a forest succubus from his recent play Moon Child

We posted rare footage of an actors’ reading of Moon Child with music and the author at the American Academy in Rome in 2011.

Other Walcottiana:
• A translation of a poem by Joseph Brodsky
• A memoir of Walcott by our contributing editor, the poet Melissa Green

We also have a poem this week in our Weekly from our very first issue, available as a PDF here.

Happy Birthday Derek!
