Alaska / druk 1

Alaska - Peter Verhelst Another very good work by Verhelst. This highly structured poetry collection is a companion piece to the novella Memoires van een Luipaard [Memoirs of a Leopard], and shares with that work the strong sexual energy and urban atmosphere. In several parts of Alaska however, this setting is left behind, and Verhelst transports us to the more abstract poetic landscapes that feature in many of his other works.
