    I really enjoyed reading Geoffrey Philp's book,Dub Wise. The poetry is rhythmic, stylish, and thought provoking. Like Jamaica’s reggae music, it has the ability to instruct and delight simultaneously. It is a celebration of life, family and Jamaican culture.

    Straight, unhidden poems. No garlands. Emotions in known and unknown human experiences. I have read these poems many times and I keep reading them. And of course I have my personal favourites, but you'll have to find out which are yours.
