English translation by author of Afrikaans poetry book first published by Tafelberg, a division of NB Publishers (Cape Town) in 1980. Annesu de Vos is a writer who was born in South Africa and who has lived in Canada since 1987. Her first book was published by Tafelberg Publishers of Cape Town when she was sixteen years old, followed by a second book at age eighteen. She is a recipient of the Eugene Marais Prize, a prestigious literary award from the South African Academy for Science and Art, for best poetry debut. Her historic publishing record, being the youngest-published poet in the literary history of the Afrikaans language, remains unbroken to date. There are two streets named for her in South Africa. Widely anthologized selections from her published works have been on prescribed reading lists in the curriculum at grade school and university levels in her country of origin for more than three decades.
