In Britain – a place where Derek Walcott was one of the first names mentioned in the realm of Caribbean poets – Kendel Hippolyte has, for many years, been St Lucia's other poet.
In the Windward Islands, however, he is a well-loved, era-defining poet. Perhaps one of St Lucia's best-kept secrets, Kendel Hippolyte won the OCM Bocas Prize in 2012 for his collection Fault Lines and now celebrates the release of his latest poems in Word Planting.
