He has received several prizes for poetry in his home country. His latest volume, Al die lieflike dade (which could be translated as "All the comely actions") has recently been a finalist for two well-known poetry prizes.

He likes to rely on a mixture of imagery and ideas, and mixing up the personal and the social dimensions. Though he comes from a very politically minded society, his poetry refers to this sphere mostly obliquely and in indirect ways. The indirect commentary, which strays from the known route and arrives unexpectedly, covered in barnacles, is what he favours.

He has on occasion said he likes writing about a country that he has dreamed up. This place has strong similarities to a real, geographical place, but it exists entirely separately. And only poetry knows its name.
