Die bundel, wat in P.J. Philander se nege-en-tagtigste jaar verskyn het, is geskryf terwyl hy in New York gewoon het. Ten spyte van die afstand tussen die digter en sy geboorteland, spreek die gedigte in die bundel steeds van 'n intieme verbintenis tussen hom en sy land van herkoms. In die middel van die winter word Miem Fischer saam met haar enigste seun en ander familielede weggevoer van hulle plaas naby Ermelo: eers na die konsentrasiekamp by Standerton en daarna na die kamp by Merebank naby Durban. In haar dagboekinskrywings ontvou dag na dag die aangrypende verhaal van hoe sy die haglike realiteit van lewe in n konsentrasiekamp moet verduur. Tant Miem Fischer se kampdagboek is een van maar n handjievol dagboeke wat die lyding van Boerevroue en -kinders van dag tot dag weergee en wat na die oorlog behoue gebly het.

The War Poems Of Wilfred Owen (Hardcover): Wilfred Owen The War Poems Of Wilfred Owen (Hardcover)

'Orpheus, the pagan saint of poets, went through hell and came back singing. In twentieth-century mythology, the singer wears a steel helmet and makes his descent "down some profound dull tunnel" in the stinking mud of the Western Front. For most readers of English poetry, the face under that helmet is that of Wilfred Owen.' Professor Jon Stallworthy, from his Introduction. When Wilfred Owen was killed in the days before the Armistice in 1918, he left behind a shattering, truthful and indelible record of a soldier's experience of the First World War. His greatest war poetry has been collected, edited and introduced here by Professor Jon Stallworthy. This special edition is published to commemorate the end of the hellish war that Owen, though the hard-won truth and terrible beauty of his poetry, has taught us never to forget.

A fold in the map (Paperback): Isobel Dixon A fold in the map (Paperback)

R135 R107 Discovery Miles 1 070 Save R28 (21%) Shipped within 4 - 10 working days

A fold in the map charts two very different voyages - a tracing of the dislocations of leaving one's native country, and a searching exploration of grief at a father's final painful journey. In the first part of the collection, Plenty - "before the fold" - the poems deal with family, and longing for home from a new country, with all the ambiguity and doubleness this perspective entails. In the title's second half, Meet My Father, the poems recount events more life-changing than merely moving abroad - a father's illness and death, the loss of some of the plenty of the earlier poems.

I've rounded up a rowdy assembly

Of my own Consequential Dogs

As counterparts to Eliot's mogs.

Mine are a rough and ready bunch:

You wouldn't take them out to lunch . . .

But if they strike you as friendly, funny,

Full of bounce and fond of a romp,

Forgetful of poetic pomp,

I trust you'll take them as you find them

And, at the very least, not mind them.

T. S. Eliot's best-selling collection of practical cat poems has been one of the most successful poetry collections in the world.

For the first time in company history a companion volume will be published. Originally conceived by Eliot himself, Old Toffer's Book of Consequential Dog poems are a witty, varied and exquisitely compiled as Eliot's cats.

Tussen Toeval en Willekeur (Afrikaans, Paperback): Kobus Lombard Tussen Toeval en Willekeur (Afrikaans, Paperback)

R167 Discovery Miles 1 670 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

Kobus Lombard se vyfde digbundel is ’n voortsetting van ’n binnewaartse reis op soek na die grense wat sy werklikheid omlyn. Beelde uit Lombard se Namibiese leefwreld suggereer dat die onsegbare dikwels tussen woorde en in le spasies skuil; dat die ware god hom verskans tussen vele ander gode. Grense vervaag en die waarheid flits soms bedrieglik soos gemsbokhorings teen ’n duin. Tussen die pole van waarskynlikheid word die ritme bepaal deur toeval en willekeur.

R224 R169 Discovery Miles 1 690 Save R55 (25%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

An Anatomical Venus - which gives this book its title - was an eighteenth-century anatomical wax sculpture of an idealised woman, a heady mix of eroticism, death and biological verisimilitude. Venus could be opened up and pulled apart by all the men who studied her. She would give up her secrets the first time of asking. Helen Ivory's new collection The Anatomical Venus examines how women have been portrayed as `other'; as witches; as hysterics with wandering wombs and as beautiful corpses cast in wax, or on mortuary slabs in TV box sets. A hanged woman addresses the author of the Malleus Maleficarum, a woman diagnosed with `Housewife Psychosis' recounts her dreams to Freud, and a sex robot has the ear of her keeper. The Anatomical Venus imagines the lives of women sketched in asylum notes and pictures others shut inside cabinets of curiosity.

"This is the stuff of life, the very essence of the poetic." -LitHub For Hala Alyan, twenty-nine is a year of transformation and upheaval, a year in which the past--memories of family members, old friends and past lovers, the heat of another land, another language, a different faith--winds itself around the present. Hala's ever-shifting, subversive verse sifts together and through different forms of forced displacement and the tolls they take on mind and body. Poems leap from war-torn cities in the Middle East, to an Oklahoma Olive Garden, a Brooklyn brownstone; from alcoholism to recovery; from a single woman to a wife. This collection summons breathtaking chaos, one that seeps into the bones of these odes, the shape of these elegies. A vivid catalog of heartache, loneliness, love and joy, The Twenty-Ninth Year is an education in looking for home and self in the space between disparate identities.

In her fourth collection, Isobel Dixon takes readers on a journey to far-flung and sometimes dark places. From Robben Island to Hiroshima, Egypt to Edinburgh, the West Bank and beyond, these poems are forays of discovery and resistance, of arrival and loss. Bearings sings of love too, and pays homage to lost friends and poets the voices of John Berryman, Robert Louis Stevenson and others echo here. As Dixon explores form and subject, and a sometimes troubled past, she keeps a weather eye out for telling detail, with a sharp sense of the threat that these journeys, our wars and stories, and our very existence pose to the planet.

Part one of The Comedy Project - an edition which will be six parts in all. Be introduced to Dante's world in this beautifully illustrated, modern re-imagining of his work. Dante called his chapters songs, and this book contains the first 17 songs of The Comedy Project, which make up the first half of the Inferno Inside You. Traditionally Dante's journey is considered to be a vision of the afterlife. The reason why people today still read his Comedy is that it is relevant to our real, present-life journeys. Written as both an extraordinary saga and art book, Inferno Inside You transports readers into some of the remarkable stories which were a vital part of Dante's imagination. The journey that begins with this book will show readers aspects of life that are hidden, and rarely touched upon by other writers. Meet leopards, three-headed dogs, and centaurs, a lion, a wolf and a monster. Uncover questions that were unique 700 years ago in the early Renaissance - and discover that they are even more relevant today. It is about people, and the greed and envy of our world - and about love.
