0 Reviews
South African poet Keorapetse "Willie" Kgositsile has selected 69 poems from six previously published collections as well as new work. The poems, written over four decades, many while in exile, explore a wide spectrum of emotions and a need to participate in the struggle to liberate the poet's land of birth. In the stunning original rhythms of the poems, the subtle influence of jazz and the Setswana language, the poet's mother tongue, can be heard.
