This poetry hailed from what was once the British Commonwealth. English was the international language of most of the British colonies. After the Commonwealth was dismantled, the literature that originated in these colonies; Africa, West Indies, Canada, India, Australia, and New Zealand came to be known as Commonwealth Poetry.
