Bladspieël | Poetry & Poetry Anthologies
Human & Rousseau
Bladspieël is Marlise Joubert’s eighth collection of poetry. In her characteristically flowing style, Joubert explores themes such as mortality, memory, love, relationships with loved ones, the life of the poet and the act of writing. Foregrounding the poet as experiencing, perceiving subject, the poems articulate events within the life of the poet, thus implicating the reader in detailed depictions of everyday life.
