Poetry. WINTER, THE UNWELCOME VISITOR is a five-section poetic cycle amending the ordinary with the extraordinary. The work shows versatility in style and form and yet maintains poetic excellence: a careful balance of metaphor, imagery and thought. Always experimental, there is no one style that characterizes the book. From brief and academic, to wordy and effusive, the style shifts according to the subject. Unstintingly political, unforgivingly critical of commonly held ideas about the relationship of humans to the natural world and to each other, the relevance of this work to both a Canadian and an international audience is undeniable.

Review:

"Some of these poems are vivid evocations of South Africa's Western Cape, and elegies of loss; others capture moments of longing and desire between lovers, as well as passages of bitterness." - JM Coetzee
