Ingrid Jonker - A Poet’s Life

by biographer Petrovna Metelerkamp

Ingrid Jonker, A Poet’s Life

The first comprehensive biographical publication on the life of this young South African poet Ingrid Jonker who became an icon and a legend. Ingrid Jonker drowned at the age of 31.

'She was both a poet and a South African. She was both an Afrikaner and an African. She was both an artist and a human being. In the midst of despair, she celebrated hope. Confronted by death, she asserted the beaurty of life.'

Nelson Mandela
