All that I know is that we were extremely lucky that we had occasion to listen to Marita van der Vyver when she visited our school and addressed our Grade 10s. She talked about her response to poetry¬†as a young student, her response to her son’s love of Rap and Hip Hop, and how, in her conversations with him, developed an expanded understanding of what poetry is and what it could be. Interwoven with this personal narrative, she interspersed readings from her latest novel. It was magical!
