Volume 30, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0258-2279



Die skrywers van hierdie artikel is ook die Afrikaans-vertalers van die dertien Jacques Brel-chansons wat ter sprake kom. 'n Bondige omskrywing van die genre van die Franse chanson en 'n aanstipping van Brel se statuur as twintigste-eeuse chansonnier word gevolg deur agtergrondinligting oor en 'n beskrywing van die gevolgde vertaalproses. Omdat literêre gehalte 'n besondere kenmerk van chansonlirieke blyk te wees, word 'n aantal paragrawe gewy aan 'n bespreking van die digterlike aard van die betrokke liedere.

The authors of this article also translated the thirteen Jacques Brel chansons in question into Afrikaans. A brief explanation of the generic nature of the French chanson and an evaluation of Brel's stature as a twentieth-century chanson writer are followed by background details and a description of the translation process involved. Since literary quality is a particular characteristic of chanson lyrics, several paragraphs are dedicated to a discussion of the poetic nature of Brel's songs.
