GUYANA: Tribute To Michael Gilkes: YouTube Recording Available – Sunday 26th September 2021

Paying tribute to Michael Gilkes: So Many Skins


Michael Gilkes flyer.png
Paying tribute to the late Michael Gilkes, Ken Corsbie hailed ‘the volume and range of his work [and] his accumulated productivity over a lifetime as a poet, scholar, playwright, theatre practitioner and actor.’ To meet Michael was to sense immediately that he was a man of ‘many skins’, able to shed light effortlessly on Guyanese poetry, literature, art, plays and music and to add a regional and/or an international perspective. Other scholars might acquire a similar depth of knowledge about Wilson Harris or Edgar Mittelholzer or Denis Williams or some other local luminary. Few could corral them into a cast to populate the canvas of our complex culture with Michael’s facility.
