by Haidee Kotze

The poems in Scrim are written with a taut musicality enhanced by their arrangement on the page. Precise in their language and feeling, they remake the familiar in new and striking ways.  About Kotze's 2014 collection The Reckless Sleeper,  Kelwyn Sole wrote “With inventive use of line and page and an unusual, but telling, juxtaposition of images, she achieves a poetry that is simultaneously visceral and intellectual. Her poems are at once both toughly gnarled and delicately gentle.”
