Based on the experiences of a lecture and reading tour in South Africa, these poems deal with the state of a society just unfreezing from apartheid, but in indirect ways which illuminate by their obliqueness.

"The poems deal with that landscape, each one like a sharply etched woodcut, ranging from a fine tribute to a poet caught 'under the strong shaft of the Johannesburg sun' of this politically volcanic city, to a 'frozen image' of sacred ibises in Durban’s Botanical Garden. None of his poems is tendentious, but each is tense with quiet intensity."
Mario Relich, Lines Review
