Still Further

by C.J. Driver

Imbued with a sense of history - not to mention an ample wit and sharp eye for irony - C.J. Driver's first full collection of poems since 2005 is cause for celebration. Selected from the many poems Driver has written and published in magazines, booklets, and anthologies since his professional retirement in 2000, Still Further manages to take in the international scope of his many careers: as anti-apartheid activist, teacher, headmaster, and - of course - as writer and poet.

While showing an impressive range of formal poetics, weighty philosophy, and Driver's trademark political forthrightness, this is a book bound by love, replete with reflections on family, companionship, and old friends remembered. As such, this collection does not just portray one of South Africa's great living poets; Still Further is a testament to the value of people - no matter how great or humble - whose shared lives and histories make one's own life worth living. Affirming, immersive, and generously conceived, this is a must for any serious reader of English poetry.
