The Colours of our Flag

by Allan Kolski Horwitz

This collection of poems by Allan Kolski Horwitz and illustrated by the painter James de Villiers was awarded the 2020 Olive Schreiner Award for poetry.

Kolski Horwitz’s poetry encompasses sensually charged relationships and encounters between men and women, examinations of political realities (including the lives of artists and revolutionaries) and imagistic depictions of natural phenomena. This collection, comprising 80 poems written over the past three years, represents a further collaboration with de Villiers –the collection There are Two Birds at my Window (published in 2014) having been the first. James de Villiers has worked with Botsotso for over ten years and produced soundscapes for two Botsotso cd’s of poetry.
