The Voyage

A poetry collection by H. Nigel Thomas.

H. Nigel Thomas

The Voyage is a collection of poems culled from a lifetime of meditations on self, family, time, and aging; it also reflects on political and social aspects of human lives, such as hubris, abuse of power, racism and oppression.

About the earlier poems in this collection, George Elliott Clarke said: ". . . at times stunning work. Rich and powerful poems. I especially like the political and biographical verses as well as the obvious wit and intellect in play." (From Mawenzi House Publishers)

The Voyage is available in September 2021.

H. Nigel Thomas was born in St. Vincent and has lived in Quebec since 1968. He is the author of four novels, three collections of short fiction, one poetry collection and two scholarly texts. Thomas received the Martin Luther King Jr. Achievement Award in 2020.
