Our Green Gallery poets speak their minds


“But a garden, the oldest sign of man’s quest for ordered beauty, a garden of poems, such as pressed flowers in an old book, how we rest there on a rock, a marshy trunk, a hidden violet winking!” This is how Philip Janse van Rensburg responds to the latest poetry exhibition in the Taalmonument’s open-air gallery. In addition, LitNet conducted interviews with most of the poets, which can be read here. But the best option is to visit the beautiful monument and Green Gallery itself.

Ons Groen Galery-digters praat uit


“Maar ‘n tuin, die oudste teken van die mens se soeke na geordende skoonheid, ‘n tuin van gedigte, soos geparste blomme in ‘n ou boek, hoe rus ons daar teen ‘n rots, ‘n mosserige stam, ‘n wegsteekviooltjie wat knipoog loer!” Só reageer Philippus Janse van Rensburg op die jongste gedigte-uitstalling in die Taalmonument se opelug-galery. LitNet het boonop onderhoude met meeste van die digters gevoer, wat hier gelees kan word. Maar die beste opsie is om die pragtige monument en Groen Galery self te kom besoek.
