The subject of this collection of poems, the lagahoo, is a shapeshifting trickster figure in Trinidadian legend who, like the Native American coyote, operates at both divine and human levels as creator and interferer. As the narrative is written from the perspective of the legendary figure, the twilight world between myth and reality emerges in the lyrical imaginings of this creative, subversive creature who rejects all forms of sexual, social, and political repression.
