Has Guyana Prize helped emerging writers living and writing in Guyana? (Pt 2)

first_imgDear Editor,One of my major concerns is the quality of writing that has won the Guyana Prize. I have read all these books with a great deal of interest. Some of them, like “Essequibo”, Martin Carter’s Selected Poems, are great poetry that deserved the prize. Then I read some really vulgar and immoral works that are loaded with ‘cuss words,’ sexual overtures, and hardcore material that’s mind boggling to the real academic. My questions are these: how can we teach such books as literature to our young students in schools and university? What literary criteria were used to give these immoral books a prize?One of Mr.Creighton’s four-time Guyana Prize winners, Harold Bascom, wrote the following: ‘’Dear Minister Norton, there is a way for you to go down as the most effective Minister of Culture Guyana has ever had; and it will redeem you from being regarded as having been a mere political appointee with the least interest in culture—a square peg in a round hole.” (July 1, 2018 Kaieteur News)That is a very disgusting and derogatory statement to the Hon Minister of Culture, Dr. George Norton, so the Minister and our current administration must do the honourable thing and scrap the Guyana Prize for Literature until further notice, and demote the Prize Secretary and the incompetent Guyana Prize Board with immediate effect.Regards,Rev Gideon Cecillast_img read more
