feeling and ugly reviewed by The Johannesburg Review of Books

Danai Mupotsa

[Conversation Issue] ‘Poetry refuses the abstraction of theory’—danai mupotsa in conversation with Makhosazana Xaba

Mupotsa’s feeling and ugly presents femininity as a complex framework for thinking about how private life intersects with politics. It shows how through poetry, something as ubiquitous as feeling becomes a powerful means of conveying as much as transcending the ugly side of life. (Ainehi Edoro)
