by The Botsotso Jesters

Collective and Individual Poems by Siphiwe ka Ngwenya, Isabella Motadinyane, Allan Kolski Horwitz, Ike Mboneni Muila, and Anna Varney.

The Botsotso Jesters poetry performance group was founded in 1994. After a few member changes, it solidified in 1996 with the line-up that published this first Botsotso book. The collectively written poems that provided such powerful performance material are followed by individual collections of each of the five.

Anna Varney’s graphics set the tone for many future books in which the combination of written and visual images becomes a striking factor.
