“The Attribute of Poetry offers a feast of thought and image. Elisa Galgut’s poetry seems both new and old, fresh in its ingenuity and mature in the wisdom of its deliberations. In these ‘incantations of creation’ (to borrow a line from one of the poems), a quiet yet powerful voice speaks to us; and we cannot but be moved by it.” David Medalie, author of The Mistress's Dog: short stories, 1996-2010
Elisa Galgut teaches in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Cape Town. This is her first published collection of poems.
