About this book

op weg na kû | Poetry & Poetry Anthologies

Breyten Breytenbach

In many ways op weg na kû can be seen as a gesamtkunstwerk, as Breyten's identities as both visual and word artist merge into one in this singular collection of poetry alongside images/paintings/photographs. The collection echoes Breyten's approach in Katalekte in 2012, though the collage becomes even more diverse. Andries Visagie encapsulates: "It becomes a synthesis of his artistic talents. All of the ingredients in Breyten's literary world - the birds, the dogs, the moon, love, exile, metafictional thoughts on words and writing - are present in this text." op weg na kû reveals an overwhelming world of knowledge and insight, and wisdom.
