Description

In 1825 vind die enigste slaweopstand in die ou Kaapse geskiedenis plaas, die sg "Bokkeveldse Opstand", ontketen deur An droom van vryheid wat nie bewaarheid word nie. As kinders het Nicolaas en Galant saam gespeel; nou is hulle baas en slaaf. Tussen hulle staan die vurige, wederstrewige Hester. Die roman is An "koor van stemme", maar die hooffiguur is die slaaf Galant wat die menigte stemme bind. Ma-Roos se: "So praat ons, so praat ons, An ry stemme in An ketting, almal saam en almal apart, almal anders en almal dieselfde, en die skakels mag lieg maar die ketting is waar. En die naam van die ketting is Houd-den-Bek." In die stemme van die dertig verskillende vertellers, deur vier dele, waarin die elemente van aarde, wind, water en vuur opgeroep word, groei An persoonlike opstand uit tot An universeel menslike stryd teen onreg - op so An aangrypende wyse dat Artur Lundkvist van die Sweedse Akademie dit by die boek se verskyning bestempel het as "miskien die grootste voorstelling van slawerny wat ooit geskryf is".
