Seasonal Fires is subtitled, New and Selected Poems, and the book includes pieces from Ingrid de Kok's three earlier collections as well as a selection of new (post-2002) work. The poetry spans a writing period of at least two decades and of South African history ranging from the Sharpeville massacre in 1960, to the present. It is the dozen or so poems in the middle of the book to which I return again and again.
