Tendense in vyf nuwe digbundels
Keywords:Afrikaans poetry, debunking of poetic conventions, intertextuality, new tendencies
This article reviews five recent (2008–2009) Afrikaans poetry collections by Antjie Krog, Johann de Lange, Joan Hambidge, Danie Marais and Loftus Marais respectively. Through an integrative discussion the reviewer establishes a number of key tendencies such as these poets’ ongoing concern with the nature of poetry or the act of writing, their exploration of intertextual meaning, their parodying or debunking of poetic conventions or their poetical appropriation of the ordinary.
