Deeper and richer than before, Kobus Moolman’s voice in the poem cycle Light and After gathers strength to climax in the third section Anatomy.  Sometimes terse and astringent, sometimes luxurious, the poems are always specific, rooted in the cycles of earth and body. This is a beautiful work, distinctively South African in its imagery and diction.

Joan Metelerkamp

Moolman’s strengths as one of the leading voices in South African poetry come through when he’s most vulnerable – when he battles the varied manifestations of ordinary life.

Mxolisi Nyezwa, reviewing Separating the Seas

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, judge’s report, DALRO Prize awarded to Moolman’s Anatomy for best poem in New Coin 2008
