From the cover: "'Season of Violence' is a collection dealing specifically with the daily human issues of the 'new' South Africa's emergence from the apartheid decades of isolation and repression. In the wake of State President De Klerk's announcement on 2 February, 1990, that the 'season of violence' would end, and with the release of Nelson Mandela a fortnight later, these poems arise out of the traumatic and conflicting issues of social change occurring against a background of escalating pandemic breakdown. they are concerned with poet's personal experience of the political situation, as it manifests itself in day-to-day living, and they show that all experiences, even a visit to Venice, are permeated by the experience of living through that particular season of violence. Topical and independent minded, each item in this sequence should be read as part of a larger whole." From the 1000+ volume private collection of well-known Australian poet and author Guy Weller all of which are listed or will soon be listed on this site. Includes many hardcover Collected Poems from sought-after 20th century poets from all countries.
