About this book

Die sin van die hut | Poetry & Poetry Anthologies

Gilbert Gibson

A new collection by one of the most daring and experimental poets in Afrikaans. The motto, by French philosopher Gaston Bachelard, is a clear leitmotif for the collection as a whole: “The house. From cellar to garret. The significance of the hut.” 
Gibson is known for breaking & undermining language, finding new meaning amongst seeming random juxtapositions. This collection is once again proof of his influential voice in Afrikaans literature.
