Hinterland: Caribbean Poetry from the West Indies and Britain is a 1989 poetry anthology edited by E. A. Markham. In a long introductory essay Markham writes:

"I wanted in this to identify and celebrate a broad range of aesthetic experience — those verbal, intellectual and musical constructs that both trap and release aspects of our particular history, geography, racial and social tension [...]".

The book contains biographies and prose writing by and about the poets.
