Article

Douglas Livingstone is regularly cited as South Africa’s pre-eminent poet of the twentieth century. Born in Malaysia, but settling in South Africa at the age of ten, he made Durban, Natal, his home, microbiology his career, and poetry his central passion. He published eight collections of poems, excluding the Selected Poems (1984) and the Collected Poems (2004), as well as hundreds of uncollected pieces, essays, and scientific articles. His work displays an increasing concern with the ecological health of his home region and of the planet as a whole.
