Best New African Poets 10th Anniversary

African Languages and Collaborations

edited by Tendai Rinos Mwanaka

When we were producing yearly Best New African Poets anthologies, we knew we could never achieve perfection, or right representation and balance. They were imperfect. So these anniversary anthologies are our opportunity to create strong scholarship in one area, to take a moment and look back at the journey and reflect on the coming future. This particular anthology only has poets writing in several African languages and collaborations of African poets. BEST NEW AFRICAN POETS 10TH ANNIVERSARY: African Languages and Collaborations has 69 African Languages poems and their translations and 19 English collaborations of African poets from Nigeria, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Ghana, Cameroon, Uganda, Tunisia, Sao Tome and Principe, Equatorial Guinea and many others, in the following languages among others Shona, Zulu, isiXhosa, Sepedi, Afrikaans, Tonga, Swahili, Gikuyi, Acholi, Yoruba, Akan Twi, Igbo, Sestwana, Hausa etc.
