Derek Walcott: Collected Poems

Personal life

Derek Walcott married Fay Moston, but the marriage lasted only a few years and ended in divorce. Walcott married a second time to Margaret Maillard, who worked an almoner in a hospital, but that also ended in divorce. In 1976, Walcott went into his third marriage to Norline Metivier, which just like the previous two, ended in a break up.

Walcott is also known for his passion for traveling to different countries around the world. He splits his time between New York, Boston, and St. Lucias, where he incorporates the influences of different areas into his pieces of work.
