Questions for the Sea

by Stephen Symons

Lyrical and lachrymose, Stephen Symons’ debut collection of poems fearlessly voyages through the vast unknowns of ocean and adulthood. In sparse, yet gorgeously flowing verse, Symons gives in to the currents of love, war, nostalgia and fatherhood, bringing a new sensibility to South African poetry; creating a collection infused with an all-encompassing awe for the mystery of the natural world, and humanity’s ever-changing place in it.
