"O Coward soul to wail out thus and fret! Doth Beauty make you gaze into your soul, To see not what you see... to brood and dream? Encased in self, you see not what eyes paint. Awake! Arise! and see the beauty of The Valley of the Thousand Hills - and live!" The classic, mini-epic poem of one of the greats of 20th-century South African writing. An elegiac tale told through the lens of Zulu mythology.
