My suster het onlangs die saak knap opgesom: Dalene Matthee kkringe dalk nie die koningin van skrywers nie, maar sy was die koningin van storievertellers. Rereading even because I use it as setwork with my students does not exhaust this excellently told story. Not appealing video; the little I watched.
Kringe in die Bos staproete – Review of Circles in the Forest, Knysna, South Africa – TripAdvisor
The woodcutters are scared of j elephants in the forest, but there’s one elephant that never seems to threaten Saul. Tired of being exploited by wood buyers, Saul takes i stand and his father chases him away.
He goes to work on the wood buyer MacDonald’s wood yard, where he gets to know MacDonald’s daughter, Kate, and falls in love with her.
After a few years 10 years in the film, 2 years in the book he leaves MacDonald and Kate and joins the first prospectors in the forest, searching for gold.
Millwood becomes a small town with hotels and bars and houses. One night, an elephant makes trouble and MacDonald tells Saul’s brother, Jozef, to find the elephant and kill it. Saul hears about this and sets off to find ih elephant before Jozef. The film is based on the novel kkringe Dalene Matthee, which was translated from Afrikaans to more than 10 other languages, although the film differs substantially from boa book.
If you’ve read the book, don’t expect the same story in the film. A lot of the original feeling of powerlessness that Saul experiences, for instance, is lost in the film. Matthee was a South African writer of note who died on 20 February One of those places and times on earth I would like to have experienced.
This wiki article certainly could benefit from some indigenous bks perspective, or even that of the lowest class whites depicted by Matthee. May 09, Ilze rated it it was amazing.

A great foreign language book, which a friend in South Africa sent me, to practice reading Afrikaans and, at the same time, learn something of the history and culture of the Afrikaners, or Boers.
It is a powerful story set in 19th century South Africa. I found it very interesting and educational in learning the language and gaining an insight into this great culture and a country which I hope to visit someday.

Jan 24, Margitte rated it it was amazing Shelves: Hierdie boek was my eerste kennismaking met Dalene Mathee wat my al haar boeke laat koop het. Dalene se “Kringe in ‘n Bos” is ‘n boek wat ‘n mens gryp en nie los nie.
Misterieus, werklik, histories korrek, geloofbaar in alle opsigte. Sy ken haar onderwerp. View all 3 comments. This affricaans language author from South Africa is excellent! Her works have obviously been translated into English, making her accessible not only to non-affricaans speakers in SA, but to the world anglophone community.
Her stories are well told – I highly recommend this particular story, about the coming of age of a young man who wants to connect with the world beyond the enclosed forest and its families of the Knysna region along the south coast of SA.
Saul Barnard comes from a long line of woodcutters in the Knysna forest of South Africa. Only Saul is different He realizes what all the cutting is doing to the future of the forest, and he gets wise to the unscrupulous dealings of the wood-buyers in the village.
But trying to make his family and relatives aware of what’s happening labels him as a traitor. He wants to fight to save the forest and the eleph Saul Barnard comes from a long line of woodcutters in the Knysna forest of South Africa. He wants to fight to save the forest and the elephants. In fact, he seems to have a strange understanding with one elephant in particulr, Old Foot. Years later he hears that the elephants have been on a rampage and he must go back.
The storyline goes back and forth between the “present” day return to the forest and his experiences growing up to get to this point. I found myself really feeling for Saul with the emotional roller coaster and also for Old Foot and the elephants as their habitat was destroyed. I definitely want to read this again – as I’m sure that there are events at the beginning that, knowing the end, I’ll catch earlier.
This is yet another gorgeously crafted book by Dalene Matthe. Her characters are so believable because she is able to show every detail of how it feels to grow up in the forest. It took me a minute to orient myself to the era and the place which were foreign to me. But with her incredible descriptions and dialog I became a 19th century dutch wood cutter living in the forest in South Africa.
I feel as if I know the forest inch by inch. Her book describes the class struggle and the ecological disas This is yet another gorgeously crafted book by Dalene Matthe. Her book describes the class struggle and the ecological disaster of the human greed. More and more people come to rape the forest taking ivory, gold and diamonds and leaving a gutted bleeding landscape behind along with the people who live there.
Her description of the thought processes that create this vicisous circle of poverty, slave labor and tradition help us understand now human beings become so entrenched in beliefs that they cannot change. She shows us how visionaries are punished for having new ideas and how human creativity, wisdom and intuition are mutilated by the small minded fear of those who recognize greatness and fear it.
A wonderful piece of work, Dalene wove her whole story through the use of circles She has done thorough research and although the book is translated from Afrikaans it reads as if English was the original language. The story is about the Knysna forest in the Cape, South Africa.
It tells the story of the forest people and the elephants and how they interact with each other.
