Walking, Falling

by Kelwyn Sole

Walking, Falling by Kelwyn Sole was awarded the 2018 SALA Poetry Award.

Walking, Falling is Kelwyn Sole’s seventh collection of poetry. It extends and deepens themes that emerged in his earlier books: love and human relationships; the exposing of false and clichéd perspectives in our socio-political life; our relationship as South Africans to land and landscape. Rustum Kozain has written about his work: “Whether the theme is the end of a relationship or the murder of immigrants, there is the calm look of analysis, a voice, like a conscience, that threatens to disturb the reader’s complacency, but a voice simultaneously gentle with empathy and sincerity.”
