Ti-Jean and His Brothers by Derek WalcottTi-Jean and His Brothers is a very good play. It has comedy, tragedy, music, poetry…it provides a full effect that transports the audience to the Caribbean. In the play, the Devil, who is a planter, interacts with three brothers. There are all kinds of interesting statements and small poems.
“Woman life is so. Watching and losing.” (102)
“Who is the man who can speak to the strong?
Where is the fool who can talk to the wise?
Men who are dead now have learnt this long,
Bitter is wisdom that fails when it tries.” (108)
“Who with the Devil tries to play fair,
weaves the net of his own despair.
Oh, smile; what’s a house between drunkards?” (156)
The deal they make with the devil has tragic consequences.

Recap: Ti Jean and His Brothers- Derek Walcott
Ti-Jean and His Brothers takes place in the collective unconscious of its spectators, a land where life is a quest in a haunted forest, animals speak to humans and each other, and the Devil gambles for the souls of the self-satisfied. Add a stage full of supernumerary red and blue demons more bodies than most professional theaters can afford to employ , and the result is near-magical — or perhaps I should say, mythical.
