Jamaica Vacation Poetry Book Launching Movie


Jamaica  Vacation Poetry Book Launching Movie

Jamaica is one of the most beautiful countries. Here in Lethe  St. James people relax and listen to poetry being read at the launching of Soy Criada's first Anthology of poems. Journey to Enlightenment_ Revealed


Poetry is often not much appreciated by the ordinary citizens of Jamaica. This is believed to be more understood by scholars and the educated. Although it is taught in Jamaican schools many students are not drawn to it and think it is a boring subject. If you want a Jamaican of the lower and middle strata of society to appreciate this subject, then give him the poetry written in the Jamaican dialect that is when he comes alive.

Many renowned poets came out of Jamaica such as Gean Binta Breeze. Euna Morris, Claude McKay, Soy Criada, (Juliet Christie Murray ) Andrea Hutchinson, and many more but none have made Jamaica poetry and language more colorful and famous than Louise Bennett.


Lethe is the place where Soy Criada launched her first poetry book. It was famous for the legendary tale that the River housed a water spirit that at a certain time would cause the river to rise in that area and usually claim at least one life. It is a nice lush area in the parish of St. James that attracts tourists since it boasts a farm that attracts visitors who wish to admire the various types of animals and products of Jamaica.


Ellis Piece boasts a little sanctum that is called Elysium where one Sunday per month experienced poets and budding poets congregate to meet, greet and read poetry along with their friends from all walks of life.

That is where Soy Criada chose to launch her first book at one of their yearly poetry festivals hosted by Mercon, amidst the lush green landscape, the cool atmosphere, a gift from the cold mist rising from the flowing waters of the Lethe River.

Jamaica has lots to offer just book a Jamaica vacation to this lovely island and meet the wonderful people. watch the movie  and   get a copy of the book
