SEPARATING THE SEAS (article first published : 2007-08-10)

The University of KwaZulu-Natal Press recently launched Separating the Seas by Kobus Moolman.

This is a collection that celebrates the quiet beauty of the ordinary. Moolman’s subtle poetry speaks in the enigmatic strokes of abstract art. His poems give lyrical form and voice to the silence at the edge of language and comprehension. They have the fleeting but powerful visual quality of a world glimpsed through the moving car window, invoking the ‘found moment’ with an imaginative aptness that makes the reader smile with recognition.

Kobus Moolman teaches creative writing at the University of KwaZulu-Natal and is editor of the poetry journal, Fidelities. One of his previous publications, Time like Stone, was awarded the Ingrid Jonker Prize for 2001, and his play, Full Circle, was awarded the Jury Prize at the 2004 PANSA Festival of New Writing.
