Christopher Heywood, A History of South African Literature



Christopher Heywood, A History of South African Literature
Christopher Heywood surveys representative South African poems, plays and prose works in five literary traditions: Khoisan, Nguni-Sotho, Afrikaans, English, and Indian. Heywood's selections include over 100 authors and selected works--covering poetry, theater and prose. Explored in the context of crises leading to the formation of modern South Africa, South African literature emerges from this study as one of the great literatures of the modern world.
Review:
'South Africa's rich and complex history comes to life in this comprehensive account...an impressive authority...the sheer variety of style and form that Heywood encompasses in his criticism is extraordinary.' - Times Literary Supplement
