Gardening in the Tropics Background

It is her clarity of thought, her capacity to construct the clean precise line, and her direct commitment to political issues that make this collection such a welcome addition to West Indian writing. Described as they are above, one may get the impression that these sequences or movements are independent entities with no thematic or stylistic cohesiveness. But this is just not so. Senior makes wonderful use of echoes, thematic repetition, and an intelligence that is at once spiritual and pragmatic to create a very clear pattern of journeying and discovery in the entire collection.

Her use of symbolism as a craft allows the reader to experience vicariously, the helplessness of the Amerindians thus reinforcing her thematic concern of exploitation through evangelism. Seeing the Light is a blatant argument on the rape of the environment by the acknowledged ''you'' of the Manichean construct, Kwane Dewes The ''you'' being the white exploiter of the native and the ''Manichean construct'' referring to the good spiritual world of light and an evil material world of darkness. This is why the First stanza of the poem begins by saying, ''Gardening in the tropics nowadays means letting in light. On contrary, their conquest terminated the lives of the Amerindians and resulted in severe deforestation hence the statement, ''By the time they've cut the last three in the jungle only our bones will remain as testament to this effort to bring light.
