"One can even characterise him as a post-modern author, thanks to the ironical distance of his tone. And there is a definite tone to his poetry, an unmistakable and recognisable style that belongs to him exclusively.
"Perhaps it is because of this that he has always been treated as an alien, a stranger,an intruder, which all importanrt poets have been in their own time." - Introduction, A South African Abroad: Selected Poems
