"Addressed to a young writer, Intimate Stranger is an eclectic and generous work flowing with insight and wit. Breytenbach's candid and provocative reflections on reading and writing guide without guiding, open mental channels, surprise, and inspire. A stirring glimpse into the mind of an artist, Intimate Stranger is a river of experience and visions, brimming with sleights of tongue and overshifting in mood. This genre-defying gem makes manifest Einstein's assertion: 'Example isn't another way to teach, it is the only way to teach.'"--Publisher's website
Return to paradise by Breyten Breytenbach ( Book )
11 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1975, Breyten Breytenbach, a young Afrikaner poet, painter, and ANC activist in exile, made a secret visit to his native South Africa. He was arrested, charged with treason, and imprisoned for seven years. Much has changed since those days: Nelson Mandela has been released, apartheid is on its way out, F. W. de Klerk has set in motion multiracial rule, and Breytenbach, the young rebel, has become one of his country's most respected figures, an insider-outsider with a unique view of South Africa and Africa as a whole. In rich, vivid, evocative prose Breytenbach captures Africa: primitive huts alongside modern airports; the constant migrations of peoples; the ethereal beauty of the land. We travel with him from town to town, from Kwamandlangampisi and Houtenbeck to Goshen and Atlantis. We hear jazz in Capetown and hippopotami oomphing in pools, we see cardboard slums for blacks and exquisite white suburbs - cool houses with luxuriant gardens behind security walls topped with broken glass. We read of principals chased from classrooms by their students, and police confiscating cameras; we pass paw-paw trees, avocado orchards, and the blackened ruins of schools and huts; we learn ancient fables and folk superstitions, and always reflect on politics. This is a poet's experience of Africa, at once unsparing and elegiac
Notes from the middle world by Breyten Breytenbach ( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In dialogue with the dead and living - Nelson Mandela, Mahmoud Darwish, Barack Obama - internationally distinguished South African artist and writer Breyten Breytenbach's new collection of essays traces the collisions between utopia and disaster, political traumas and the renewal of hope. Notes from the Middle World is a beautiful and heart-wrenching book. Against the conformity of power, Breytenbach takes readers on a journey through the 'Middle World,' an imagined space beyond borders and exile, toward an embracing vision of justice for the un-citizens post-modernity has dispossessed." -- Back cover
