About this book

Die afwesigheid van berge | Poetry & Poetry Anthologies

Louis Esterhuizen

The three long poems which form the heart of this book pull the reader into a poetic narrative of strange, almost incantatory power: A song of pilgrimage, a song of love, a song of thanksgiving. The pilgrim/narrator is the everyman near the end of his life’s journey.

But it is not only a personal journey – it is a journey with a particularly South African reality and resonance.
