Explorations in Sights and Sounds
doris davenport's poetry collection, Voodoo Chile - Slight Return, firmly connects her to the southern African roots that she embraces. The poems speak from the perspective of a world-traveled feminist as well as a concerned humanist. davenport's poetry moves between being so caustic they singe, to an almost light-hearted, humorous tone. In both extremes, davenport's underlining motive seems to be to expose ills and ridicule contradictions inherent in the society.
