Simon van Schalkwyk Reviews Skinned by Antjie Krog

SkinnedVerdict: carrot

Local audiences familiar with the poetry of Antjie Krog may experience a sense of déjà vu when reading Skinned: A Selection of Translated Poems. The volume reprints, with occasional revisions, a number of poems originally collected in 2000’s Down To My Last Skin. The reason is simple: Skinned is the first of Krog’s poetic works to be launched in the USA, and the volume is intended to introduce a significant body of poetry to a new, trans-Atlantic, audience.
