      Abstract: Op uitnodiging van 'n plaaslike leeskring het bekroonde Afrikaanse digter en dramaturg Adam Small in September 2014 'n besoek aan Potchefstroom gebring. Die geleentheid is deur die vakgroep Skryfkunde en die ATKVSkryfskool van die Noordwes-Universiteit aangegryp om 'n verskynsel van kennelike aktualiteit in die Afrikaanse letterkunde, met name in die Afrikaanse digkuns, by wyse van 'n seminaar oor die aangeleentheid in die kollig te plaas.

  • Wie mag Kaaps in wie se Kaaps? 'n Ondersoek na die gebruik van Kaaps in
           Marlene Van Niekerk se Kaar
    • Authors: Anastasia De Vries
      Abstract: This article explores the literary reflection of Kaaps in two poems written by Marlene Van Niekerk, writer and poet, which appear in her latest publication, Kaar (2013) from the perspective of linguistic diversity. A dialectological and sociolinguistic analysis of her use of Kaaps serves as background for the view that Kaaps belongs to all speakers who regard Afrikaans as a heterogeneous language, even those who are not native speakers of Kaaps. I argue that Van Niekerk's Kaaps is not merely a representation of what she perceives Kaaps to be or an attempt at "imagining the other" but that her documentation of this variety is a true and authentic reflection of Kaaps as it is spoken in the Boland and Macassar near Strand in the Western Cape. In her Kaapse poems we see both a linguist and creative writer at work, and beyond that, Van Niekerk as a medium for Kaaps.

  • Om gedigte in 'n Afrikaanse dialek te skryf
    • Authors: Hans Du Plessis
      Abstract: The question is often asked why I have written poetry in the Griqua dialect of Afrikaans? The term Griqua verse refers to my four volumes of poetry in this dialect. The article deals with the subsequent issue of appropriation in literature and questions connected to it, including: Whose dialect is it? What do you know about the dialect? Whose intellectual property is it? Whose voice is it? Within the framework of practice based research, the ethics of my writing in a dialect are discussed, and it asks about the place of this poetry in the Afrikaans literary system. It points out that the choice of the specific linguistic code is based on extensive sociolinguistic research. A number of other literary works in dialects are referred to. It is argued that negative reaction on the Griqua poetry is in most cases a political reaction and not a literary one.

  • Omgangsvariëteite van Afrikaans in die digkuns sedert Sestig
    • Authors: Bernard Odendaal
      Abstract: Dialectic varieties of Afrikaans in poetry since the Movement of the SixtiesEmploying dialectic or colloquial varieties of Afrikaans for poetic purposes has been a trend of growing importance in the history of Afrikaans literature, especially since the advent of the Movement of the (Nineteen) Sixties. The relevant Afrikaans varieties include regional idioms like Karoo and Bushmanland Afrikaans, but also sociolects like "Loslitafrikaans" ('informal' Afrikaans, in which a significant amount of English vocabulary is introduced), forms of Cape Afrikaans, and Griqua Afrikaans. As a stylistic device, the use of dialectic Afrikaans has served - sometimes simultaneously - both literary strategic purposes (striving for poetic and/or poetry system renewal) and socio-political aims (as actuality poetry or socio-politically engaged literature). Seen in total, it transpires that the pressing socio-political and broader cultural conditions that have dictated past or are powering present developments in South Africa, loom large behind the relative importance of this trend in Afrikaans poetry.

  • Afrikaanse transtaling en taaloorgang : die napraat van Tsotsitaal en
    • Authors: Jako Olivier
      Abstract: This article explores Swartafrikaans and Tsotsitaal as alternative non-standard codes of Afrikaans in two poems. The concept of standardised Afrikaans is well documented in the subject literature, but proves problematic in a context where language borders are dynamic. To this end the concept of translanguaging is useful to represent the negotiation between languages by bi- and multilinguals. Another important aspect is the use of language crossing through which languages are imitated. Swartafrikaans refers to a variety of Afrikaans historically used by non-Afrikaans speakers of African languages in South Africa. Furthermore, Tsotsitaal refers to an informal slang based on Afrikaans. The use of Tsotsitaal in 'Last Night' by Frans van Rensburg and Swartafrikaans in 'Die Djêrrê en die dooiwêl' by R.K. Belcher were explored in this article. It was found that rather than using Tsotsitaal and Swartafrikaans respectively these two poets employed a language-crossing strategy through which translanguaging takes place.

  • "Klipwerk" : 'n Rooihakskeenlesing
    • Authors: Christo Van Rensburg
      Abstract: "Klipwerk" (Stone Work), Van Wyk Louw's 1954 poem, actually a series of 97 separate poems, is interpreted as a poem about romantic and amorous inclinations. "Klipwerk" tells of courtship strategies, of falling in and talking about and making love, of hardships, loneliness, jealousy and the many sides attached to the natural urge of humans to fulfil their obligation to populate the earth. As will be pointed out, the sub-poems in "Klipwerk" are clearly linked thematically. New light is shed on parts which were previously deemed to be unclear parts: some verses, the title of the poem, as well as the syntactically unfinished first two lines, written in the standard Afrikaans code. The rest of the poem is written in the Afrikaans dialect of the Roggeveld region - one of the oldest Afrikaans dialects in the north western Karoo-region, where Van Wyk Louw grew up and which forms the spatial setting of "Klipwerk". This warrants some remarks about the dialect used, as well as on closely related Afrikaans dialects of that region. It is shown that Van Wyk Louw's presentation of the poem series inspires many interconnected interpretations of it - meanings well concealed under a seemingly simple surface.

  • Die vertaalbaarheid van gedigte in Kaaps : stilus
    • Authors: Daniel Hugo
      Abstract: A translator's biggest challenge is to determine the exact register of the source text. When translating from a dialect, the translator encounters an even bigger problem, as the dialect could sound much more informal or humorous to a standard language speaker than was originally meant. When translating Kaaps, it becomes more complicated, as there are many variants of this sociolect (even if a poet like Nathan Trantraal denies this vehemently). The language of Adam Small, Loit Sôls, Peter Snyers and Nathan Trantraal differs in many aspects. A standard language translation of a dialect text is just as unsatisfactory as a translation into an artificially created dialect (as illustrated by Mike Dickman's translation of Nathan Trantraal). Therefore, it seems as if dialect texts are, in essence, untranslatable.

      Abstract: Die USAN-kongres vir jong navorsers, aangebied deur die Departement Afrikaans en Nederlands van die Stellenbosch Universiteit, het vanaf 21-23 Januarie 2014 plaasgevind. Jong navorsers van reg oor Suid-Afrika, asook enkeles uit Nederland, België en Nieu-Seeland, het hierdie eerste kongres bygewoon. Die doel was om 'n basis vir jong navorsers te skep om hulle navorsing, wat op hulle nagraadse studie gebaseer is, met akademiese eweknieë te deel. Nagraadse studente (M-, PhD- en afgestudeerde Honneursstudente) en jong navorsers (wat die afgelope vyf jaar gegradueer het) in die letterkunde, taalkunde en toegepaste taalkunde is uitgenooi om deel te neem. Ten einde nie enige jong navorsers in dié studiegebiede uit te sluit nie, was daar geen tematiese beperking nie. Die enigste vereiste was dat referate in Afrikaans of Engels gelewer word. 'n Tolkdiens, behartig deur personeel en nagraadse studente van die Departement Afrikaans en Nederlands, het vir toeganklikheid gesorg. Die kongres was 'n groot sukses en die organiseerders en deelnemers was beïndruk met die kwaliteit van die referate.

  • Die "agtstekleurgekekkel" in Etienne van Heerden se 30 nagte in Amsterdam
           : Tante Zan se bewussynstroom as "gedagtebriewe"
    • Authors: Frederick J. Botha
      Abstract: The "agtstekleurgekekkel" (eighth-colour cackling) in Etienne van Heerden's 30 nights in Amsterdam : Aunt Zan's stream of consciousness as "thought letters"Etienne van Heerden's 30 nagte in Amsterdam (2008) contains two storylines, one being that of the eccentric and epileptic Aunt Zan de Melker, which is presented through the stream of consciousness. This is labeled as "eighth-colour cackling" (Van Heerden, 2011:18), being a variegation of idioms where punctuation is excluded to a large extent. The novel contains many letters which can be analyzed according to the theory of the epistolary novel, but it also innovatively engages with the discourse of epistolarity and supplements existing theory. I will thus argue that Aunt Zan's stream of consciousness, although not stylistically presented as letters, but due to the presence of an addressee and the confessional nature thereof, can be read as a series of "thought letters" and therefore be seen as an example of confessional literature. This will be done by acknowledging the respective views on diary entries of Martens (1985) and Field (1989); views on epistolary novels of Singer (1933), Skonnord (1975) and MacArthur (1990); views on letters of Malherbe (1988) and Rosenmeyer (2001); and views on the first person narrative of Van Eetveldt (1982), Brink (1987), Scholtz (1992) and Mullan (2006). A connection can be drawn between these different views, enabling Aunt Zan's stream of consciousness to be read as "thought letters".

  • Recasting social criticism in 19th century fiction and modern fantasy
           fiction : corrupt institutions as theme in Bleak House by Charles Dickens
           and Going Postal by Terry Pratchett
    • Authors: Mariza Breytenbach
      Abstract: This paper explores how fantasy writer Terry Pratchett transforms social commentary in novels by subverting readers' expectations. This is done using a section from Bleak House (1853) by Charles Dickens, whose novels are considered prominent examples of social commentary. The section is used to consider the literary presentation of social commentary in novels as it manifests in the theme of corrupt governance. A section from Pratchett's Going Postal (2004) follows, illustrating how Pratchett expands on the presentation of social commentary, focusing on the same theme. The aim is to show that while readers generally expect a fantasy novel to contain an element of entertainment, Pratchett exceeds this expectation: he entertains readers with elements of fantasy while subtly injecting this realm with similarities of everyday life, causing readers to reflect on important concepts like corruption and its effect on contemporary society.

  • Vroulike muses en die kombuis as ondermynende ruimte in Louoond (1987)
           deur Jeanne Goosen
    • Authors: Bibi Burger
      Abstract: Traditionally the kitchen is seen as the space of the housewife. Her task is to instil ideology in the next generation, but not to play an active role in the shaping of it. The American Second Wave feminists reacted to these traditional views by negating the body and the irrational. They distanced themselves from the figure of the housewife, especially after the publication of Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique (1963). The protagonist of Louoond, the 1987 novella by Jeanne Goosen, reclaims the kitchen from the patriarchy and uses it as a subversive space in which feminist art and perspectives can be developed. In my paper I argue that the novella provides several models for the creation of provocative, specifically female art. The novella itself is such a model, as is the work of the muses that inspire the protagonist: George Sand, Maria Callas and a female spider.

  • Gestorwe geliefdes : die herkonstruksie van die selfnarratief in
           Doodsbloei (Pieter Boskma) met verwysing na die rol van die mite van
           Orfeus en Euridike daarin
    • Authors: Nadine Hamman; Hein Viljoen
      Abstract: Trauma shatters a person's existing self-narrative, especially trauma experienced after the loss of a loved one. "Turning one's life into a narrative is a vital way of finding meaning" (Van der Merwe & Gobodo-Madikizela, 2007:2); thus by writing a narrative after experiencing trauma using scriptotherapy, a form of narrative therapy, the author can strive to reconstruct his self-narrative. Scriptotherapy entails "the process of writing out and writing through traumatic experience in the mode of therapeutic reenactment" (Henke, 1998:xii). The myth of Orpheus and Eurydice - as the generic representation of a story of the loss of a loved one and its accompanying grief - can play a role in this reconstruction, whether it is done consciously or subconsciously. This myth serves as a framework of analogy, guiding the author in the process of reconstructing his self-narrative through the narrator, as is the case in Pieter Boskma's Doodsbloei (2010). This article aims to provide the reader with evidence from Doodsbloei that scriptotherapy serves a useful purpose in working through traumatic loss. However, it seems that the process of writing plays a bigger part in working through the traumatic loss of the narrator in Doodsbloei than the reconstruction of the self-narrative itself. In the end, only words prevail. Thus the narrator tries to save his loved one (and himself) through writing.

  • Die veranderinge in die diskoers oor gesondheid met verwysing na Sarie
    • Authors: Susann Marais
      Abstract: According to Caldas-Couthard (1996:250) women's magazines play a central role in contemporary popular culture. In this paper I use her discussion as a starting point to investigate the change in health discourses in the Afrikaans women's magazine Sarie. The increase in contributions on health issues in Sarie from two in 1983 to eleven in 2013 can be seen as indicative of a growing interest in issues relating to health within the lives of Sarie readers over the past thirty years.Existing research on health discourses in women's magazines show that health discourses are influenced by medical and legal discourses and everyday health/medical practices. I use this existing research as a framework to analyse the health discourse in Sarie. In addition Fairclough and Wodak's (1997:273) theory on critical discourse analysis is used.The analysis of health related contributions in Sarie from 1983 to 2013 focusses on the change in health themes and language use in order to illustrate how the medical and legal discourses influenced the magazine discourse in Sarie.

  • Transferring and transcending literature : Game of Thrones as transgeneric
    • Authors: Jan-Hendrik Swanepoel
      Abstract: The idea of a literary canon or a canon of important texts has traditionally been confined to the sphere of written literature. However, the novel or book as medium is not the only medium or text that is important today. Television as an artistic audio-visual medium, coupled with technological advancements in recording and postproduction editing render it a rich medium for screening adaptations of novels. This article traces the development of television as a narrative medium and uses George R.R. Martin's A Game of Thrones and its adapted television version Game of Thrones to suggest a more comprehensive, inclusive and less elitist study of texts - a transference and transcendence of literature. The author posits that representative (novels) and recording (television) media should not be separated as having higher and lower canonicity, but that it could benefit literary scholars' understanding of texts when reading narratives or stories across media.

  • H.P. van Coller oorskry die "soom"
    • Authors: Anthea Van Jaarsveld
      Abstract: Op die rugkant van sy digbundel Soom, uitgegee in 2012, skryf Hennie van Coller: "'n Soom is 'n grensgebied: van skeiding, binding, maar ook van afronding. (Deur al hierdie elemente) word 'n eiesoortige karakter aan die terugblik, binneblik en uitsig op 'n landskap verleen". Dwarsdeur sy akademiese loopbaan toon sy werk ook 'n eiesoortige karakter waarbinne die oorskryding van grensgebiede, ter wille van die stimulering van gesonde gesprek oor die Afrikaanse literêre sisteem, duidelik na vore kom.

  • Die grens as motief in die oeuvre van Ingrid Winterbach
    • Authors: Heilna Du Plooy
      Abstract: All narratives imply change. Without change there can be no narrative. On the story level of a narrative text there is usually a sequence of events that brings about change, but on the level of the plot and the discourse these ordinary events are endowed with more complex thematic meaning so that event and meaningful eventfulness are often described as the dominant aspects of narrative texts. In this article a brief overview of important views of event and eventfulness is presented, culminating in a discussion of Peter Hühn's distinction between two types of events. This distinction is based on the degree of functionality of an event within the thematic scope of the text on account of representative and structural aspects. The theoretical discussion serves as the point of departure to analyse, interpret and discuss the dynamics of eventfulness in the novels of Ingrid Winterbach. Though these novels seem to be rather uneventful in the sense that the stories do not contain dramatic events, the important events in the novels, sometimes paradoxically small incidents, very often have to do with the transgression of borders and boundaries. In this sense the novels are deeply concerned with transformative experiences which enable characters to transcend their own psychological, social and ideological limits.

  • "'n Siklus in die kleine" : die tweede afdeling in Keerkring (1977) deur
           Welma Odendaal as kortverhaalsiklus
    • Authors: Thys Human
      Abstract: The stories in Welma Odendaal's four extant volumes - Getuie vir die naaktes [Witness for the naked] (1974), Keerkring [Tropic] (1977), Verlate plekke [Desolate places] (1991) and Landskap met diere [Landscape with animals] (2009) - enter into conversation with one another not only within the boundaries of each individual volume, but especially across their boundaries. Nowhere else, however, does one find tighter unity or more conspicuous links between discrete short stories than in the three stories, "LM" [Lorenzo Marques], "Baker" [Dry-nurse] and "Grens" [Border] within the second section of Keerkring. This article demonstrates, with special reference to the understandings that Smuts (1982:3) as well as Botes and Cochrane (2011a, b) bring to the discussion of the short story cycle in Afrikaans, the senses in which these three short stories mesh to form a clear cycle in Odendaal's second, controversial volume Keerkring. It pays particular attention to the manner in which concurrent reading complements and enriches each story in terms of the other two; thereby establishing an overall meaning far greater than the sum of the discrete parts. In this light, the article questions and laments the eventual omission of "LM" in the compilation volume Vreemdeling: 'n Keur uit die verhale van Welma Odendaal [Stranger: a selection from the stories of Welma Odendaal].

  • Komparatistiese klassifikasie, of die dampkring van die Afrikaanse
           literêre historiografie
    • Authors: Jerzy Koch; Jerzy Koch
      Abstract: This article attempts to explore the comparative classification approach, employed by critics and literary historians as a method of forming the literary canon. Departing from the case of Boniface being compared to Moliére, the discussion focuses on possibilities offered by comparative classifications as an instrument of analysing literary history, the field of reference from which literary historians write, and expectations regarding intended readers. Within this context, the framework of references to foreign writers in major Afrikaans literary histories by G. Dekker, R. Antonissen and J.C. Kannemeyer are taken into account. Macro- and microstructures within the discussed histories are looked into. On the one hand, the manner in which N. P. van Wyk Louw's position is defined with the use of foreign authors' names is analysed. In order to illustrate the approach of various literary historians, relevant quotations are presented. On the other hand, collected statistics are interpreted as general quantitative data. These two approaches complement each other and serve within this research to indicate possibilities of analyses which make use of the comparative classification method.

  • Mauritius in Afrikaans : Elsa Joubert se reisbeskrywing van 'n eiland suid
           van die wind
    • Authors: Naomi Morgan
      Abstract: Elsa Joubert contributed the first Afrikaans travel description of Mauritius to the canon. In addition to her sensorial descriptions of an accessible, tropical paradise and a source-based overview of the island's history at a time (1962) when the South African focus was rather on the interior, the Mauritian volet of the triptych is not only a description of a destination, but also of a point of departure. Joubert undertakes the journey to find possible solutions for South Africa's political and social challenges and chooses her sight-seeing accordingly. It is also an historical document which records her meeting with the Franco-Mauritian writer Marcelle Lagesse and several prominent Franco-Mauritians before independence in 1968.

  • "Kultuur en krisis" vandag
    • Authors: J.C Steyn
      Abstract: In his essay series, "Kultuur en Krisis" ["Culture and Crisis"], N. P. van Wyk Louw distinguishes between three types of crises facing peoples. The first is external crises such as military conquest and demographic marginalization. The other two are internal crises: the crisis of despair and survival through injustice. It is characteristic of such crises that small peoples are often powerless in the face of external crises; members of peoples never think and act unanimously on crises, partly because of the attraction of ideas that threaten their survival, and the major influence of opinion formers. N.P. van Wyk Louw's view of the crisis of survival through injustice helped contribute to ending this crisis for Afrikaners. The first two crises have remained acute. The author examines these crises, and relates these to the republican argument of thinkers like Danie Goosen and Koos Malan.

  • 'n Nederlandse teekoppie, 'n Duitse klavier, Britse uniforms en 'n
           kameralens : Fees van die Ongenooides deur P.G. du Plessis; die artefak en
           sy geheuepotensiaal
    • Authors: Anthea Van Jaarsveld
      Abstract: To facilitate a certain memory potential around artifacts within the immediacy of the film text requires a definite cognitive approach. The film text implies a continuous interaction between a visual offer of the content and the viewer's decoding strategies. Because of the specific visual elements of a filmic text, the informed viewer is always aware of the role he/she has to play in the decoding process. From the outset, viewers instinctively expect codes with a deeper meaning within the visual range. The assumption could be made that from a cinematographic perspective, artifacts used in the film text in fact act as a deepening or intensification of the script itself. When studying the philosophy of the filmic artwork, it is only possible if the work of art is studied from within the anthropological mainstream embedded in the ethnography. This approach to the film, because of its elements of implied meaning, therefor incorporates an ethnographic perspective, an anthropological post modernistic perspective, but also aspects of semiotics. Because of the forensic as well as the simultaneously timeless quality of the filmic text, artifacts are interpreted from within a social relationship but also a historical frame of reference. Interpretation of artifacts can in other words be studied based on a theory of representation within the boundaries of cognition, which incorporates all above mentioned theories. Art can therefore be viewed as an activity that stems from the context of human cultural and cognitive evolution. The artifacts become mechanisms of this so-called representation. In this article, the principles which control the decoding of the film will be examined. Among others, the complex cognitive and cultural domains which are used by the screenwriter and the producer to enhance the artifacts will come to the fore by referring to the multiple possible interpretations of a number of artifacts in "Feast of The Uninvited" by P.G. du Plessis.
