Spotlight: Sylvanus Barnes

Pictured, Antiguan poet, Sylvanus Barnes signs copies of Barney’s Wit ‘n Wisdom which includes radio favourites like ‘Harp of Gold’. More recently, he launched the two volume Fling Stone inna Hog Pen. Here’s an excerpt from my coverage of the launch in June 2010:

“Long after we are gone, it will be recorded that Sylvanus Barnes was a great poet,” said Education Director Jacintha Pringle, who described the verses in Fling Stone inna Hog Pen volumes 1 and 2, and Barnes’ body of work generally, as both “witty and deep.”
