Derek Walcott Poetry
Studying Derek Walcott? He’s a brilliant genius, but he’s also pretty tricky to understand! This course teaches you all you need to know about many of his major poetical works. You’ll find in depth analyses of his poems, including explorations of his Anglo-Caribbean context, as well as themes that provide the basis for exam-style questions.
It's tailored to the current CIE / Cambridge A Level Literature course (9095), but it's also useful for understanding Walcott in general, and it analyses in detail some of his most famous and powerful poems.
I am the founder of Scrbbly. I love reading and writing of all kinds, and I aim to pass this enthusiasm on to my students.
I have taught English online since 2011, and have worked as a full time private tutor and teacher for over 4 years. For the last 2 years I have taught as Head of English for an online home school, which provides live lessons for Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) students from all over the world. I am also an approved AQA examiner, qualified to mark papers in GCSE and A Level Language and Literature.
I have a great track record of boosting students’ grades very quickly, simply because I help students to become self-critical; to understand what’s good and bad about their work. Find out more about me and my background here.
