This introductory chapter begins with the author's explanation of why he chose “Nobody's Nation” as the title of this book. It then discusses the central themes in Walcott's works. It describes the author's visit to St. Lucia, where he had two conversations that seem, in retrospect, to define the polarities of Walcott's imagination. This is followed by an overview of the subsequent chapters.

Keywords: Derek Walcott; imagination; St. Lucia
