Particularly poignant poems allude to his own coming death, expressing satisfaction in a life well-lived and showing vibrant courage.

Portrait

Dennis Scott was born in Jamaica in 1939. He had a distinguished career as a poet, playwright, actor (he was Lester Tibideaux in the Cosby Show), dancer in the Jamaican National Dance Theatre, an editor of 'Caribbean Quarterly' and teacher. His first collection, 'Uncle Time' (1973) was one of the first to establish the absolutely serious use of nation language in lyric poetry. His other poetry collections include 'Dreadwalk' (1982) and 'Strategies' (1989). His plays include 'Terminus', 'Dog', 'Echo in the Bone', and Scott's work is acknowledged as one of the major influences on the direction of Caribbean theatre. He died at the early age of fifty-one in 1991.
