Marlies Taljard resenseer In die afwesigheid van sin deur Susan Smith

In die afwesigheid van sinUitspraak: wortel

Vir my is een van die essensiële kenmerke van poësielees die ervaring van die leser dat mens telkens jouself raakloop, in jouself vasloop as’t ware, skielik voor ’n spieël te staan kom – om Ezra Pound se woorde te gebruik wanneer hy oor Hardy skryf: “No man can read Hardy’s poems collected but that his own life, and forgotten moments of it, will come back to him, in a flash here and an hour there. Have you a better test of true poetry?” Dié kriterium geld myns insiens beslis vir Susan Smith se debuutbundel, in die afwesigheid van sin.
