In Seas and Trees, Capildeo negotiates—with profound power and profound delicacy—uncertain realms of paradox, the force of nature and the will to power, in order to extract the phosphorescence, the luminescence, the gold. There is often a menacing beauty in her descriptions of the world of nature and the powerlessness of human beings in relation to this. She explores with courage, crafting her poetry with coherence and conviction, capturing rather than constricting, often inventing new ways of seeing, new forms of expression. Underscoring it all is a unique, irreverent, sometimes dark, sometimes whimsical humour and a deep understanding of the inexhaustible and multi-layered realms of poetry and language.
