“Anatomy is searing, honest and brave. It opens to the reader in progressively intimate revelations that enable one to experience the narrator’s visceral reality“. – Liesl Jobson
- Judges Comment on Anatomy, winner of the DALRO Prize for best poem to appear in new Coin magazine, 2008:
“Kobus Moolman’s epic poem, Anatomy, is an extended meditation on the body as the place of fragmentation and reconnnection, depersonalisation and reintergration.
The formal progression of a shaped parabola underpins this work, yet Moolman also succeeds in mimicking the misshapen corpus by contracting each sub-section.
The chorus-like repetition of key images and questions layer the work and contribute to its cohesion.”
