Voice Over by Breyten Breytenbach
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


After Mahmoud Darwish's death in 2008, his friend Breyten Breytenbach was inspired to create this collection of poems honoring him. There is much fertile common ground the two poets share: a guiding empathy, an uncompromising commitment to truth and humanity, a language and dreamscape rooted in love and hope. Voice Over is Breytenbach's passionate and elegiac exploration 'to look for Darwish among the words'.
