Sandra Saayman explores the relationship between text and image in Breyten Breytenbach's work, arguing that his poems, essays and works of fiction need to be considered alongside his drawings, prints and paintings.

This book includes nine drawings made by Breytenbach in prison in the 1970s, in print for the first time, plus many other colour illus. of his paintings and drawings.

Text mainly in English, with an Afrikaans essay, "My Eie Vark", by Breyten Breytenbach.

Sandra Saayman is a senior lecturer in South African literature and culture studies at the University of Réunion Island, and a senior research fellow in the Faculty of Humanities, University of Johannesburg. She obtained her PhD in literature at the University of Poitiers, France, for a thesis entitled "Text et Image: la literature de prison de Breyten Breytenbach".
