Human & Rousseau

The subtitle of the author’s new collection is “artefacts for the slow uses of dying” and indicates its main themes: parting, mortality, death.

It forms a triptych with his previous collections: Die windvanger and Die beginsel van stof.

The 20 paintings and photos in colour form an integral part of the poetry.
