The Poetry of Paula Obe Thomas – A Diva of daring diction expanding the limits of Trinidadian Poetry
Paula Obe Thomas has spent half of her life in the practice of poetry. She has devoted this time attempting to master the basics and to create her own niche in Trinidadian poetry. Indeed she has become a personality in the poetic world in Trinidad and Tobago. Her own uniqueness rests upon her creation of the song-poem and her skills as a performance poet. In addition, she has become known for the most daring diction of the day, approaching her controversial themes in a most aggressive way, which has not yet brought about any negative sanctions. With her trademark guitar she continues to satisfy and entertain her audiences and to earn the respect of her peers.
