As the title indicates, these are poems about Cape Town, or that have been inspired by this specific city space.
It is also poetry that represents the many facets of the city, from an architectonic finesse to an underworld disorderliness. Here the reader can follow a poet’s eye that is attuned to the slightest change in light and mood – a seeking eye, the sensitivity of which is fed by a constant yearning.
And what impresses one about Loftus Marais’ poetry time and again is how his eye leads you from impression to something that has the air of a fundamental insight.
