Despite this, reviewers do often classify Turner as a landscape poet and for good reason. There is no getting away from nature in his work.
The seasons roll in and out of the collection as he captures their literal manifestations and their figurative effects on people who seem to change with them. Along with seeing what concerns have stayed the same for the poet, we also see in collected works the way that their perspectives have shifted.

As the years progress Turner becomes more obvious in his growing environmental concerns, sometimes becoming so blunt as to lose the poetry in preference for the message. His early works on New Zealand and New Zealanders are witty, he looks at us with amusement such as in the poem Semi-Kiwi.

And he continues to invite us into his questioning — even while being grumpy at our destructiveness.

The incarnation of this order in his poetry is the city in which he grew up, the city of Leningrad… But in contrast to the dramatic effect usually found in elegiac poets… the death of the world order in Rein is accompanied by a vulgar ditty from the 30s or 40s.
He is an elegist, but of a tragic stripe. Few among his compatriots would dispute the depth of the despair and exhaustion that darkens these poems… '. Toggle navigation.
