About Carib's Leap: Selected and New Poems of the Caribbean: Laurence Lieberman writes with an acute awareness of the damage wrought to Caribbean peoples, landscape and cultures by successive waves of invaders.His goal as poet and traveller is to 'take in my hands, all, all! that I touch! and leave/ no fingerprints.No signature.' In one sense, he achieves just that, the convincing illusion that, though there is careful attention to form and the creation of telling image, what we have are poems that focus directly on their object, without the mediation of a distorting consciousness.Of course, this is too modest a view.Lieberman's Caribbean is one that emerges from a well-informed respect and many years of involvement; what he chooses to observe is shaped by his knowledge of the region's embattled autonomy and creativity, though sometimes it is the byways that draw his attention: the ancient synagogue on St Eustatius, a leper colony on St Kitts.Beyond that, one senses that in discovering the Caribbean, Lieberman discovers himself.
The poems - dramatic, visual, story-telling, conversational, compassionate, insightful - begin with the sea and travel through the islands, from the Dominican Republic and Haiti, Grenada and Montserrat, St Lucia and Barbados, through the Netherlands Antilles and on to the continent to Suriname and Guyana.
There are poems drawn from Lieberman's earlier collections, the first dating from 1968, poems previously published in journals and a new sequence of poems focusing on the Big Drum ceremony of Carriacou.
