Abstract:

"Presented here is a most unusual collection by one of the foremost poets in Afrikaans. It is dedicated to the sun, praised in this instance through the various yellows of heaven and earth as the source of life. It begins with a sun-yellow landscape painting on which seven telegraph poles stride forth, and from there fans out as if to reveal to the reader seven different stories from the poet's life and travels around the globe. On the one hand the yellow changes hue to white - mainly of the moon - and on the other hand to the red of fire, lava, hurricanes and tsunamis. The on-going theme is life and loss; loss and life. The poems speak, sometimes with unnerving directness, of the experiences of women in faraway places - in ancient Greece, Afghanistan, Mexico, Tibet, Russia and Malta - but return each time to the wheatfields of the Overberg where the poet, in her own words, "was born in the yellow of the wheat, and will one day lie down there again."--Provided by publisher.
