The Wisdom of Water: A Selection | Poetry & Poetry Anthologies
Human & Rousseau
A selection from the poems of one of the most important Afrikaans poets and twice Hertzog Prizewinner. The translations were done by well-known poet Johann de Lange and approved by the author. Her poetic voice is an elegant one, delicate, honest, down to earth and often humorous. From the veins of rivers /the land bleeds into me. /I am the blender of secret /dishes in my dark kitchens. (from The sea speaks)
What the critics say of her poetry: A pure poetic vision, full of a sense of wonder, strong, intelligent, ingenious simplicity, earthy, ironical.
