Man's inhumanity to man

SMALL ISLAND


 


Andrea Levy


 


 


The title of this book is multi-layered.


Is Jamaica the small island?  Is it England? 


Or is every person a small island unto themselves who looks with suspicion at a neighbouring island?


 


 


So you thought you knew better –


were better…


Think again.


Weep, weep for the hardheartedness


and shortsightedness…


Weep for man’s pitiful , pitiless


dearth of love.


 


Even Christ, himself, found it so.
