Summary

This anthology is a collection of Afrikaans poems with their English translations from poets who are actively writing and publishing. The editor hopes it will go some way towards remedying the present lack of exposure and encourage future publications offering translations of writing also representative of the broader traditions of historical and twentieth-century Afrikaans poetry. Individuals were asked to submit up to ten poems; some offered their own translations, but for the remainder, a panel of excellent English translators were used. In each case the poet worked in close collaboration with the translator of his or her choice.
