Example text

The advance towards this recognition traces the process of a gradual surrender to the burden of departure, a wisdom in acceptance and reconciliation of its painful conflicts. Importantly, the aesthetic pattern of metaphoric correspondences is integral to the intellectual process of realization. The organic, sequential growth of correspondences, from one image to the next, creates an effective whole. Walcott exercises his usual technical concentration to underline this movement of thought and emotion.

The setting thus sustains its "luxe, calme, et volupte", and is able, through deft modulations, to hint at the deeper strains of labour and life struggles in these waters ("Quiet, the fury of their ropes", "the blue heave of leviathan"), suggesting a world, a totality of experience, contained within that "calme". Behind this picture of peace and plenitude lies the echo of MarvelPs "a holy and a cheerful note" in "Bermudas", a poem which strongly influenced Walcott during this period, as is evident from both the title and the title poem of this volume.

27 This feature - the underlying commitment to the formal structure - is significant for what it reflects of the balance between the concern with technical competence and the engagement with the pain of landscape. It is obvious from "Tales" that the concern with the native predicament is beginning to press seriously against Walcott's consciousness. But the elation of craft seems to have a balancing effect. It is an aspect of his apprenticeship to which we will return later on in the chapter. It is, in fact, the elation of craft which gives the volume its characteristic spirit.
