Konstantin was a voracious reader and an engaging interlocutor. This was especially evident in his teaching. He taught and supervised on a variety of topics: Victorian literature, poetry, Modernism and South African literature – thus it’s likely that his legacy will be felt most keenly in this arena, to which he devoted himself inexhaustibly, and with which he made such an impression on those around him.
Nevertheless, there is a small collection of his written work, for the media and other publications that we are thrilled to have compiled below. Though the work below represents merely a small measure of his greater intellectual project, it comes some way to representing his intellectual sensibility, bravery and commitment.
This is not an exhaustive list, and we’d certainly welcome any suggestions or pointers about anything we’ve left out. If you know of anything that’s not here and should be, please email us at email@example.com and let us know.
