S.V. Petersen's magazine storiesS.V. Petersen (1914-1987) is known for his poetry and is regarded as the first black Afrikaans poet. He started his writing career with a number of short stories and sketches that were published in journals and magazines. These texts give a rare insight into so-called ""coloured"" urban and rural life during the 1940s. The article places the texts within the socio-political context of their time and gives an overview of characteristic themes and linguistic features.
