Poems of a South African: The collected verse – A. Vine Hall (presentation copy – by the author)

R350.00

The Prospect for poetry in South Africa is brightening. That is has been dark is not surprising. In a vast country where there is so much to be done and where the white population is under two million, most of whom do not use English as their mother tongue, poets seem superfluous. Was it otherwise in England with her far greater population and in what we now boast of as one of her most splendid poetic periods with Shelley as its brightest star?
