UFS poets work included in album
2006-06-23

The poems of three of the University of the Free State's (UFS) word artists have been included in the album Honderd jaar later.  The album is published as a celebration of “Winternag” by Eugène N Marais on 23 June 1905. “Winternag” is regarded as the first Afrikaans poem.  More than 1 000 poems have been submitted for inclusion in this memorial album, of which only 50 are published. Poems of Marais and of those included in the album will be performed in the show Eugene Marais klink 100 jaar later by Carel Trichardt en Petru Wessels in July during the Volksblad-kunstefees, presented on the UFS campus.
