Ti-Jean and His Brothers

By Derek Walcott
Evening, rain, the heights of a forest. A cricket, a frog, a firefly, a bird. Left, a hut with bare table, an empty bowl, stools. The mother waiting.
No. acts: 


A parable of three sons and how each fares with the devil, especially Ti-Jean, "a fool like all heroes," who passed through the tangled opinions of this life, loosening the rotting
faggots of knowledge from old men to bear them safely on his shoulder
