Other Signs (ePub) | Poetry & Poetry Anthologies
Ingrid de Kok
Ingrid de Kok is one of South Africa’s leading contemporary poets in English. Reputedly one of the most widely anthologised poets in South Africa, her poems are also published and taught abroad and scholars and critics have written extensively on her work.
A new volume by this celebrated poet is therefore always anticipated with interest and enthusiasm. This book, Other Signs, her fifth volume, brings her lyric gift to a new level of quiet intensity as she looks backwards and forwards across the self’s endeavour to name the world, to touch it and to draw from it the meanings of experience. Compassionate, poignant, exact and playful, each poem is aware of all the others in the collection and together they constitute the depth of a remarkable reflective mind.
Published in conjunction with Snail Press.
