STRAUSS FOR POETS (article first published : 2002-06-3)

Adams Books Coffee Shop in Musgrave Centre has proved such a popular venue that the group's initial three-month tenure there has been extended until the end of the year when the situation will again be assessed.

The next meeting on June 12 should also attract a full house as the guest presenter is celebrated poet and academic Peter Strauss. Strauss' volumes include the highly acclaimed Photographs of Bushmen, Bishop Bernward's Door And Other Poems and The Owl And The Moon. His critical analysis Talking Poetry is required reading for lecturers, teachers, students and poets. Since retiring from the University of Natal, Durban, where he taught English Literature for over 30 years, he has established the publishing firm Solo Collective, which should be of interest to aspiring poets and authors.

Taking a cue from his surname, the evening's theme is Music. Poets are invited to present any of their work which could be linked to that topic. There will also be an opportunity for them to air their poetry on any subject they wish.

The meeting commences at 17h30, eats and beverages are available, entrance is free and all are welcome - but donations are accepted and participation is encouraged.

For more details phone Brett on 031 266-4762 weekdays 08h00 to 09h00 or e-mail thirdeye@3i.co.za
