Moolman launches sixth poetry book

Rhodes>ISEA>Latest News

AWARD-WINNING poet and playwright Kobus Moolman will launch his sixth collection of poems, Left Over (Dye Hard Press), at Ike’s Bookshop tomorrow at 6 pm.

Moolman, who teaches creative writing at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, has just returned from a three-month writer’s residency at Rhodes University in Grahamstown. 

Left Over describes the inner world of a man dealing with what the poet calls “being in the flesh, being a body in the world”. Sparse but dense, the prose-like poetry is arresting in its intensity and power.

As Cape Town critic Kelwyn Sole says: “Kobus Moolman’s elliptical, foreshortened poetry opens up a world of exploration and heightened experience from which the reader eventually emerges, chastened but delighted. These are poems of acumen, depth and extraordinary pressure.”
