Synopsis

In 'The Melanin Trail' the poetry of Magdalene May Faulkner reflects on the life of the British-born child from the Caribbean diaspora of the 1950s and 60s. Through her work the poet details the struggle for a truth around identity, belonging and purpose for this generation, as it still yearns to become assimilated. For many the desire remains to simply be 'one of the many' British inhabitants of society, with open opportunities. Faulkner, who was born in London in the early sixties, alternates between cynically comedic and philosophical voices of separation, disappointment and aspiration, in a collection of work that is at times disturbing, at times touching and often vulnerable.
