This edition retains the mixture of prose and poetry that was a feature of the original book, but includes a number of new selections alongside some of the more popular stories and poems in the original anthology. This new edition also brings one of the most widely-used and long-lasting anthologies to a new generation of young readers.The Sun's Eye retains all its proven favorites, but almost half the stories and poems are new, selected from the past 20 years' wealth of Caribbean writing. The Sun's Eye again includes its unique feature 'Notes about the Writers', prepared by each author specially for this book. In addition, at the request of many teachers, there are now questions at the end of each piece of writing, to further the students' understanding and appreciation and to encourage their creativity. The centre illustration on the cover and many inside, are by Caribbean artists.
