The Images of 'In-between' in Derek Walcott's Poetry

Raj Kumar Baral

Abstract


Derek Walcott, by using in-between images like 'twilight', and 'beach' in his poetry, establishes his position as 'something besides,'  which is more than his hybrid position of 'neither the one nor the other,' to locate his split state of being. There is a correspondence between Walcott's split in- between states of being with the in-between images with which he repeatedly identifies himself. These images, on the other hand, have become the metonymic signifiers of the poet's consciousness.
