Description - Seasonal Fires by Ingrid de Kok

This is a new poetry from South Africa's most talked-about contemporary poet. New and selected poetry from Ingrid de Kok, encompassing the variety and continuity of her work over the previous 25 years. In South Africa, and internationally, readers and critics alike have recognised and responded to de Kok's deeply developed sense of compassion. South Africa's most lucid and composed voice in contemporary poetry, she shares in every piece her ability to interweave the intensely personal with the politically panoramic. De Kok is one of the few poets to successfully broach the burden of tragedy revealed by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings and the ceaseless ravaging of the AIDS pandemic. In doing so, she captures - in the most delicate and individual terms - devastating phenomena.
