About the book

Kryt | Poetry & Poetry Anthologies
Hennie Nortjé

Aan die einde van die Kryt 
kalk 'n streep deur die krans 
en bulder oor die afgrond uit: 
Skrander aap, nou is jou kans! 

In Hennie Nortjé's second collection of poetry (following on the award-winning In die skadu van soveel bome) the battle of human existence is the theme of restrained, subtle and often wryly humorous verse dealing with the extinction of eras (such as the Cretaceous, the Kryt-tydperk in Afrikaans); the impact of catastrophes on the universe and man; man's subjection to disasters and dangers; wonder at the beauty and grace of nature; and the creative human's efforts to counter Time's destructive force via the creation of art. Geology, ecology and natural history are major themes, as well as poems about the simple joy of nature and art, which will be familiar to readers of his previous collection.
