Derek Walcott & the American Standard
Derek Walcott's criticizes the "American standard" at the Calabash International Literary Festival.
Walcott was critical of the American standard, saying "you don't tell stories, you don't mould character, you don't have a beginning, a middle and end. That is old-fashioned. It is good that Caribbean people are old-fashioned. They still tell stories and that is what the human heart yearns for".
