Abstract

Die artikel is 'n kort huldeblyk aan die Nederlandse digter Ad Zuiderent en boek-staaf sy betrekkinge met die Afrikaanse literêre omgewing by geleentheid van sy 65ste verjaardag. Sy gedig "Telefoon uit een thuisland" word ontleed met verwysing na Roman Jakobson se omskrywing van taalfunksies en geplaas in die konteks van pogings om deur poësie aan die Suid-Afrikaanse landskap uitdrukking te gee. Daar word ook na die gesprek tussen die Nederlandse en die Afrikaanse literêre sisteme verwys. Zuiderent se gedig en my vertaling daarvan word ingesluit.

This article is a short tribute to Dutch poet Ad Zuiderent on the occasion of his 65th birthday, with an emphasis on his links with South Africa and Afrikaans literature. His poem "Telefoon uit een thuisland" is analysed with reference to the functions of language as described by Roman Jakobson, but more specifically by relating it to the echo chamber of discourse regarding poetic descriptions of the South African landscape. Reference is also made to the dialogue between the Dutch and Afrikaans literary systems. Zuiderent's Dutch poem and my translation of it are included.
