Notes

First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "To Maggie Derek Walcott 96", with a later pencilled note pointing to the inscription and dating it 1969. The recipient may have been Margaret Vyner, the mother of the British poet Hugo Williams, as a cutting of Williams's review of Walcott's In A Green Night is loosely inserted. The Gulf was awarded the Cholmondeley Prize for Poetry in the year of its publication, Walcott's first major accolade.
