The Guyanese poet Martin Carter (1927-97) was one of the foremost Caribbean writers of the 20th century. He wrote about slavery, Amerindian history and Indian Indentureship in relation to contemporary concerns. Wise, angry and hopeful, Carter's poetry voices a life lived in times of public and private crisis.
martin carter's poetry was first published in Britain in 1954 by the leftwing publishing house Lawrence & Wishart when publication in colonial British Guiana wasn't possible, and later by New Beacon Books. He appeared in E.A. Markham's seminal anthology Hinterland (Bloodaxe, 1989) as one of the father figures of modern Caribbean poetry. Two editions of Selected Poems by Martin Carter have been published, one in Guyana in 1997 and another in Britain by Peepal Tree in 1999. Stewart Brown's critical anthology All Are Involved: The Art of Martin Carter also appeared from Peepal Tree in 1999.
