Many poems were about rape. Unforgettable still, was a young girl standing with her back to the audience while reading and shivering. A poet from Morocco asked: is rape a big thing in South Africa? It was and it wasn’t. Because it was surfacing in news stories, or as part of testimonies in court cases, it was common knowledge; but it was not in literature. About ten years later, I began to receive more and more manuscripts around this theme, but felt myself swamped with doubt and questions and unable to really assist. How should one write about it? Should it be beautiful? Should the act itself be described? And if so, how that it is not titillating? Should the narrative have a structure? What other texts are there to read that describe a rape as it should or could be described? Is there a ‘blue print’ of how to write abuse? Can one ever write effectively about being beaten? Is that even something to say?</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/178 I have my mother 2021-01-08T07:52:38+00:00 Nolwazi Machi akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>"I have my mother", a poem by Nolwazi Machi</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/198 No 2021-01-08T09:16:58+00:00 Lorain Stander akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>"No", by Lorain Stander</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/181 By Force 2021-01-08T07:58:20+00:00 Nokuzola Dyantyi-Achi akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>"By Force", a poem by Nokuzola Dyantyi-Achi</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/182 Mother's Day 2021-01-08T08:01:30+00:00 Margot Luyt akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>"Mother's Day", by Margot Luyt</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/183 That Day 2021-01-08T08:04:13+00:00 Sixolile Mbalo akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>"That Day", by Sixolile Mbalo</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/184 The First Time 2021-01-08T08:07:37+00:00 Lorain Stander akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>"The First Time", by Lorain Stander</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/185 Marriage is Large-Toothed 2021-01-08T08:17:52+00:00 Nolwazi Machi akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>"Marriage is Large-Toothed", by Nolwazi Machi</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/186 It's easy to be a man 2021-01-08T08:20:41+00:00 Nolwazi Machi akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>"It's easy to be a man", by Nolwazi Machi</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/187 Wilkeville 1979 2021-01-08T08:23:12+00:00 Lorain Stander akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>"Wilkeville 1979", by Lorain Stander</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/188 Lights Out 2021-01-08T08:25:41+00:00 Gaireyah Fredericks akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>"Lights Out", by&nbsp;Gaireyah Fredericks&nbsp;</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/189 You resemble my father's younger brother 2021-01-08T08:28:30+00:00 Siphosethu Phikelela akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>"You resemble my father's younger brother", by Siphosethu Phikelela</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/190 I don't disdain alcohol 2021-01-08T08:31:10+00:00 Siphosethu Phikelela akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>"I don't disdain alcohol", by Siphosethu Phikelela</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/191 Dust 2021-01-08T08:33:21+00:00 Margot Luyt akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>"Dust", by Margot Luyt</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/193 Collage 2021-01-08T08:40:37+00:00 Antjie Krog akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>Collage</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/196 Participants 2021-01-08T08:48:25+00:00 Antjie Krog akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>Participants</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/197 Multilingual Margins 2021-01-08T09:06:26+00:00 Antjie Krog akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>Multilingual Margins</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/173 Table of Contents 2021-01-08T06:45:29+00:00 Antjie Krog akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>Table of Contents</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://multimargins.ac.za/index.php/mm/article/view/195 Response 2021-01-08T08:45:17+00:00 Margie Orford akrog@uwc.ac.za <p>Response</p> 2021-01-08T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
