<i>Absent Tongues</i> - Kelwyn Sole <i>Up in Arms</i> - Raenette Taljaard
Award-winning poet Kelwyn Sole, professor in UCT's Department of English Language and Literature, has released his sixth volume of poetry, Absent Tongues – his first collection in six years. The book speaks of tenderness, anger, ambivalence and fear, and is written, say reviewers, with grace and thoughtful philosophical purpose, affirming Sole's position at the forefront of contemporary South African poetry. Up in Arms: Pursuing accountability for the arms deal in Parliament by Raenette Taljaard, of UCT's Department of Political Studies, tells an insider's story of political drama and intrigue during the Mbeki era, when the arms deal controversy erupted and pitted Parliament against the executive. Taljaard argues that it was not only reputations that were damaged by the arms deal saga, but also core institutions of South Africa's new democracy.
