Abstract

This paper analyses landscape in Derek Walcott’s Dream on Monkey Mountain. The paper demonstrates that landscape, which comprises trees, and sea, is very active when it comes to human existence. How does an ecological perspective give prominence to landscape peopled by miscreants, outsiders and mulattoes? With this question posed, this research, applying tenets of postcolonial ecocriticism, contends that landscape, in Walcott’s worldview, is a partner that humans, especially the colonially minded ones have neglected. Therefore, the call is for the Caribbean to reclaim their landscape and revalue it.
