The poems in this anthology illuminate the infinitesimal detail of intricate and true love. We find the unadulterated first kiss, first touch and first breaking of all things virginal. We see love's sweetness, its temper and the hurt it causes. There are some bursts of eroticism. Beautiful body-forms are draped on couches and beds or across wilderness settings. Wet and pulsing corporal landscapes serve as boudoirs. There is the occasional touch of humour with some make-believe and pretence too, in unexpected milieux.
These are arguably the most important anthologies of poetry to ever come out of South Africa
It is the yearning for the Beloved and it is always the Lover speaking.
