The search for symbiosis, or humankind's ecological atunement with nature, is one of the themes of A Littoral Zone (1991), Douglas Livingstone's final collection of poetry. This article concentrates on the poem "A Tide in the Affairs of Station 18" (1991, 46). Douglas Livingstone (1932-1996) carved a new niche in the South African literary tradition. His poetry does not fit into either the colonial or postcolonial categorisations of English South African poetry.
