A literacy Museum in the House where two famous, Afrikaans poets and writer brothers, N.P van Wyk Louw and W.E.G. Louw, were born. There are very Interesting displays, to see here!
NP van Wyk Louw, born on 11 June 1906 in Sutherland, was an Afrikaans-language poet, playwright, and scholar. He is the older brother of Afrikaans-language poet W.E.G. Louw. He viewed the Afrikaans language as a bridge that connects Europe with Africa.
He earned a Master's Degree in German at the University of Cape Town, where he later taught. He received an honorary degree from the University of Utrecht in 1948 and was a professor of Afrikaans at the University of Amsterdam from 1949-1958. He finished his academic career at the University of Witwatersrand as head of the Dutch/Afrikaans department. NP van Wyk Louw died at the age of 64 on 18 June 1970, in Johannesburg Gauteng.
When reading some of his wonderful work: you see, feel, and hear the quaintness of Sutherland and its surroundings.
