Contemporary South African Poetry
edited by Allan Kolski Horwitz
The range of South Africans often fragmented experience is best captured when individual testimonies are placed side by side – not necessarily to contradict but to augment each other. These six poets cover a wide spectrum of situations, moods, concerns; sections of six spirits laid bare for those who wish to appreciate the multiplicity of our identity.
The six poets included in this collection are Natalie Railoun, Matodzi Gift Ramashia, Alison Green, Abu Bakr Solomon, Khanyi Magubane and Thuto Mako. Their professions range from teaching drama, to being a headmaster, to radio work. The poems are well complemented by an eclectic sample of photographs (by Natalie Railoun and Thuto Mako) that offer images of people and places in stark black and white tones.
