Poem is about how someone expresses all his feelings, whether his feeling of sadness, happiness, depression and upset, through a series of words or a dense array. Everyone, surely, has an imprint in the mind so that it becomes material that can be expressed through the medium of poetry, of course, with the words that can best represent their feelings. Unlike prose or drama, that tends to use language or words in a long narrative, poetry chooses words effectively and efficiently to represent the poem’s feelings. Derek Walcott is a veteran poet whose name skyrocketed when he got the Nobel literature prize in 1992. He revealed many details of how the pain to be colonized nation . He is the only poet who dared Caribbean revealed how grief becomes a colonized who also represents the feeling of most colonized people in the world .

Two questions will be removed by Lucien Goldman structuralism theory . Given the linkages between elements extrinsic and intrinsic elements . Based on the themes of the poem Walcott , the researchers tried to examine the work of Walcott titled, Derek Walcott Collected Poems 19848-1984 . Inside are the themes of grief and how Walcott's poem tried to convey the sadness that forms in a poem. So in this research, the researchers used an mimetic approach . According to Abrams , mimetic approach is an approach to the study of literature that focuses its study on the relationship between literature with reality outside literature. Approach that sees literature as imitation and reality. Researchers try to elaborate intrinsic elements contained in the poems Walcott to then associate with extrinsic elements surrounding the history or background of the author . And the method used was descriptive - qualitative method in which the object was originally described to be presented later. From the results of the study found that the themes of grief contained in Walcott 's work over many sorrows recount the past as a nation never colonized . Walcott always involves elements of culture and history in assembling each poem , so that the reader is brought back as the dark ages of colonization .
