Die Windvanger

Quick Overview
Die windvanger was Breytenbach se eerste bundel nuwe verse sedert die publikasie van sy Papierblom in 1998 (dit was onder die naam Jan Afrika), wat in 1999 met die Hertzogprys bekroon is. Hier vind die leser weer gedigte oor temas soos reis, tyd, liefde, dood. Maar veral weer, en méér, die kwelling oor die doeltreffendheid van die woord, soos in die gedig “New York, 12 September 2001”: ‘sal enige gedig eendag iewers ooit genoeg gewig mag hê /om ’n handskrif te laat wat praat van val en vergeet ...’ En teen die einde van die bundel: ‘En wat sal ek sê het ek geleer, behalwe om met woorde /te speel tot aan die uur van my dood?’ Die windvanger is in 2008 bekroon met die Hertzogprys, W.A. Hofmeyr-prys, die UJ-prys en die Protea-prys vir poësie.

How we describe the condition of our books

We are very proud of the condition of the books we sell (please read our testimonials to find out more!)

New: Exactly as it says.

As New: Pretty much new but shows small signs of having been read; inside it will be clean without any inscriptions or stamps; might contain a remainder mark.

Very Good: Might have some creases on the spine; no hard cracks; maybe slight forward lean and short inscription inside; perhaps very minor bumping on the corners of the book; inside clean but the page edges might be slightly yellowed.

Good: A few creases on the spine, perhaps a forward lean, bumping on corners or shelfwear; maybe an inscription inside or some shelfwear or a small tear or two on the dustjacket; inside but page edges might be somewhat yellowed.

Fair: In overall good condition, might have a severe forward lean to the spine, an inscription, bumping to corners; one or two folds on the covers and yellowed pages; in exceptional cases these books might contain some library stamps and stickers or have neat sticky tape which was used to fix a short, closed tear.

Poor: We rarely sell poor condition books, unless the books are in demand and difficult to find in a better condition. Poor condition books are still perfect for a good read, all pages will be intact and none threatening to fall out; most probably a reading copy only.
