Mens dier ding | Poetry & Poetry Anthologies

Alfred Schaffer

In this translation of Alfred Schaffer’s award-winning Dutch collection, Mens dier ding, the poet explores the mythologies surrounding Shaka Zulu: warrior, intellectual, poet, victim of colonialism. Through a series of short diary entries, monologues, letters and day dreams, Schaffer transposes Shaka in a (post-)modern context. Translated by Zandra Bezuidenhout.
