Poetry By Theo Engela – A Truly South African Storyteller
It’s not known how many poems Theo Engela wrote in his lifetime, but there probably weren’t many. He was far more focused on writing novels, and his short stories which were dramatized for Springbok Radio. In those days, he wrote poetry down on scraps of paper or kept typed copies, which were more easily lost. Only a tiny handful of his poems survive today.
The Engela family archive today holds just five in English and 2 in Afrikaans.
