Country of my skull : guilt, sorrow, and the limits of forgiveness in the new South Africa by Antjie Krog( Book )

60 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since Nelson Mandela dramatically walked out of prison in 1990 after twenty-seven years behind bars, South Africa has been undergoing a radical transformation. In one of the most miraculous events of the century, the oppressive system of apartheid was dismantled. But how could this country - one of spectacular beauty and promise - come to terms with its ugly past? How could its people, whom the oppressive white government had pitted against one another, live side by side as friends and neighbors? To begin the healing process, Nelson Mandela created the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, headed by the renowned cleric Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Established in 1995, the commission faced the awesome task of hearing the testimony of the victims of apartheid as well as the oppressors. In this book, Antjie Krog, a South African journalist and poet who has covered the work of the commission, recounts the drama, the horrors, the wrenching personal stories of the victims and their families. Through the testimonies of victims of abuse and violence, from the appearance of Winnie Mandela to former South African president P.W. Botha's extraordinary courthouse press conference, this award-winning poet leads us on an amazing journey
A change of tongue by Antjie Krog( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In times of fundamental change, people tend to find a space, lose it and the find another space as life and the world transform around them. What does this metamorphosis entail and in what ways are we affected by it? How do we live through it and what may we become on our journey toward each other, particularly when the space and places form which we depart are at least on the surface so vastly different?

Synapse by Antjie Krog( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and Afrikaans and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antjie Krog's career as a poet began with resistance to language and authority. This was more than simply youthful rebellion ⁰́₃ it was a desire to free language itself from all constraints. In this, her first book of poetry in eight years, Krog once again disrupts language to create new meaning as she re-engages with her deep attachment to the land of her birth and its complex history. Amongst poems expressing her anger at social injustice, there are poems on the nature of memory and conscience and touching family poems about generations ⁰́₃ future and past ⁰́₃ in which everyday conversations resound. There are also poems about leave-taking, of which a tribute to Mandela is a highlight. Throughout, the language is raised to a new intensity. Synapse is the work of one of South Africa's finest voices. Also available in Afrikaans as Mede-wete
