Overview James Grainger's long poem in the Virgilian, georgic tradition, (1764) enjoyed initial success and was reprinted for 70 years. A major work in Caribbean literature, is an example of the literature of empire as well as an exposition of plantation slavery and the attitudes supporting it. Gilmore (British and comparative cultural studies and Caribbean studies, U. of Warwick) presents not only the poem in its entirety, but supporting biographical and historical materials crucial for more complete study.
