"...the sense of ‘urgency’ and the realisation that a poem has its own sense of ‘time’ are inherent in the work of four accomplished women poets from Zimbabwe. These voices are much needed, conveying a world made magnificent in its humanity. These voices sing of an unquenchable spirit against the backdrop of convention and expectation. Their poems also display the canniness of place and in Olson’s words ‘a tracking of earth in time’."
