Honoring the spirit of the legendary intellectual giant Sol Plaatje—an activist, linguist, translator, novelist, journalist, and leader—this sparkling array of contributions from talented poets bring the depth and breadth of life in South Africa to a wider audience. Personal themes of identity, isolation, and intimacy are pitted against politics, property and personhood, loss and love. Wicked and beautiful, this anthology also features poems in indigenous languages and Afrikaans along with the English translations.
