Bidsprinkaan (Afrikaans Edition) by André P. Brink

By André P. Brink

Ongetwyfeld ’n hoogtepunt in breaking point se oeuvre. Afrika se eeue oue magiesheid en hartstog vorm die agtergrond van die intiem verweefde komedie en tragedie in hierdie roman. Dit is gebaseer op die historiese figuur Kupido Kakkerlak (c. 1760 – c. 1825) se lewe. Maar die raaisel van ’n mens se lewe note ten beste met die verbeelding benader. Kupido is nie gebore nie, ’n arend het hom gebring. In daardie tyd het ook ’n bidsprinkaan verskyn: ’n teken van die gode. Wonderwerke het soos optelgoed op die aarde rondgelê. Nadat Heitsi-Eibib in die veld aan Kupido verskyn het, raak hy as baasjagter bekend tot ver buite die grense van die boereplaas waar hy grootword. Hy is ook dié drinker, leuenaar, minnaar en bakleier van die kontrei. Onder die sendeling dr. Van der Kemp se invloed observe hy egter die eerste Khoi wat as sendeling aan die Kaap die Goeie Hoop georden is. (Bidsprinkaan plaas ook Van der Kemp, learn en Moffat in ’n nuwe perspektief.) As Christen observe Kupido dié bestryder van Heitsi-Eibib se klipstapels en alles waarvoor dit staan. Diepgaande filosofie – en verge of collapse se kenmerkende humor.
