Of Loving and Sensualities/Wollert, Mocco/Hardb/1921479590/S019-A
Digital Publishing Centre
This is a book that celebrates the many dimensions of love, evoking a sense of the spiritual from the physical, the universal from moments of intimacy. The interplay between the poet's accessible words and the artist's erotic images is tantalising, even titillating, giving rise to a fusion between what is real and what can be imagined.
Mocco Wollert was born in Cologne, Germany and migrated to Australia in the 1950s. Mocco, who writes in both English and German, has had many poems, articles and stories widely published in literary journals, national magazines, newspapers and anthologies. She has also won many prestigious prizes for her writing. Mocco's European origins are reflected in her passionate and sensual writing. The essence of her emotive poems is easily understood and stirs feelings that are universally recognized. The theme of 'Love', 'Loving' and 'Sensuality' are a celebration of observations of ever day life. Mocco often uses a minimum of words to interpret her feelings and is strongly influenced by her love of the Japanese poetry style, Haiku. Mocco now lives with her husband in Queensland, Australia where she has become a respected poet. She is dedicated to making poetry a powerful and expressive voice.
