On “Young man at home 1972”

Marlene van Niekerk New writing 2018-07-12

"Time to part with what I’ve gleaned,
pick your favourite, he said,
I’ll print it, frame it, bring it round."

Daar gaan ’n man verby: ’n persoonlike huldeblyk aan David Goldblatt

Harry Kalmer In memoriam 2018-06-28

"Deur sy foto’s het ek besef dat die mens nie net gevorm word deur die politiek van die dag nie, maar ook deur sy betrokkenheid by die omgewing en die mense rondom hom."

In memoriam: Cecile Cilliers (1933–2018)

Martie Retief-Meiring In memoriam 2018-06-21

"Hoekom was Cecile spesiaal? Omdat sy so absoluut mens was. Van haar intellektuele werk tot haar welsynswerk, tot haar geestelike werk, was sy merkwaardig."

In memoriam: JC (Kay) de Villiers, 7 March 1928 – 5 June 2018

Paul Murray In memoriam 2018-06-11

"Out of all the great accomplishments in De Villiers’s career that reached universal proportions, the historical medical aspects of the South African Anglo-Boer War stand out as some of the supreme achievements of this genius and intellectual giant."

Philip Roth (1933–2018)

Willie Burger In memoriam 2018-05-30

"Philip Roth was een van daardie merkwaardige skrywers wat telkens, in roman na roman, daarin geslaag het om lesers bewus te maak van aspekte van hul bestaan waaroor hulle dalk nog nooit nagedink het nie, of om bekende aspekte in ’n ander lig te sien."

In memoriam: Jan Engelen

Marko van der Colff In memoriam 2018-05-22

"Jan Engelen is dood; ’n formidabele talent is weg. Daar word nou in die bos neffens my gekap. Dít laat my ver terugdink ..."

Huldeblyk: Cas van Rensburg

Piet Muller In memoriam 2018-05-09

"Ek bring graag hulde aan ’n vriend van wie ek altyd net lojaliteit en ondersteuning ontvang het en vir wie se werk ek die grootste respek gehad het."

Winnie Mandela se dood ontbloot ons almal se donker kant

Jason Lloyd Rubrieke 2018-04-19

"Skielik staan ons as Suid-Afrikaners nakend voor die spieël en ons onthou apartheid se donker kant."

Winnie Mandela: ’n enigma

Amanda Gouws In memoriam 2018-04-10

"Die verontmensliking deur ’n onmenslike stelsel is nêrens so goed versinnebeeld soos in die lewe van Winnie Mandela nie."

Winnie – ’n storie om te vertel

Diana Ferrus In memoriam 2018-04-06

"Sy was ’n mens met al die kompleksiteit van menswees."

Love in a time of burning: Remembering Winnie Mandela

zp dala In memoriam 2018-04-03

"Perhaps, this mettle was her undoing. This fierce and abiding spirit to 'play equal with the boys' was the reason why the one Winnie inside her would suffer at the hands of the other."

US bring hulde aan prof Sampie Terreblanche: legendariese ekonoom, geliefde lektor en kritiese stem

LitNet In memoriam 2018-02-19

"Sy klem op sosiale verbetering vir die groot gemeenskap is ’n deurlopende tema in sy werk."

Die “mal professor van Stellenbosch” se groot nalatenskap

Martie Retief-Meiring In memoriam 2018-02-19

"Kleurryk, opstandig, stout, borrelend van nuwe idees, nuwe insae, en ’n aangrypende empatie – hierdie woelgees laat ’n nalatenskap van begrippe en oordele wat beslis in die Suid-Afrikaanse ekonomie en politiek sal resoneer."

Sampie Terreblanche (17 April 1933 – 17 Februarie 2018)

Danie Marais In memoriam 2018-02-19

"Hy het my aandag gehou en laat voel dat ek veel meer aandag behoort te gee – nie net aan my eie frustrasie en begeertes nie, maar aan die spesifieke maniere waarop dinge vir die meeste mense in hierdie land nie werk nie."

Eulogy to Raymond Danowski – in sacred memory

Paul Murray In memoriam 2018-02-13

"[I]n the mid-70s as he [Raymond] was putting together his collection of 20th-century English poetry ... From this initial stage, today the final product amounts to what is now known as the Danowski Poetry Library – a 75 000-volume collection of rare and first editions of modern and contemporary poetry at Emory University. It includes every poetry volume in English published world-wide in the 20th century."

Stanley GM Ridge (1942–2018)

Stef Slembrouck In memoriam 2018-02-02

"Hij genoot nationaal en internationaal erkenning vanwege zijn expertise op het vlak van hoger onderwijs en heeft het hoger onderwijs in Zuid-Afrika mee vorm gegeven."

Obituary: Stanley GM Ridge

Miki Flockemann In memoriam 2018-02-01

“Stan, you have broadened our knowledge horizons by example, your intellectual energy has been infectious and you have changed and shaped those you have taught and worked with. Rest in peace, dear friend.”

’n Huldeblyk aan Hugh Masekela

Stephanie Vos In memoriam 2018-01-26

"Op die verhoog was Masekela ’n kunstenaar met groot charisma en ’n vlymskerp sin vir humor. Hy was ’n 'entertainer' in die diepste sin van die woord: hy kon ’n gehoor fyn lees en hul in die palm van sy hand hou."

A tribute to Poet Laureate Keorapetse “Bra Willie” Kgositsile

Fred Khumalo In memoriam 2018-01-25

"I was heartened by the realisation of many that all the young generation needed to do was dip into your intellect and swim in your poetry to appreciate better the work that has been done. There was no need to reinvent the spear. The time was to accept the spear from the hands of the elders, and charge forward."

Tribute to Keorapetse William "Bra Willie" Kgositsile

Sifiso Mzobe In memoriam 2018-01-09

"You walked stride by stride with giants. And, when the time came, you returned to us, held our hands and helped us take baby steps."
