LAUNCH of our new title!

Launch instagram poster for impepho press title 2021 - Yesterdays and Imagining Realities: An Anthology of South African Poetry

Yesterdays and Imagining Realities cover

Yesterdays and Imagining Realities: An Anthology of South African Poetry is a dance between bright sparks of hope and dark ties to histories. The poems – chosen from nearly 400 submitted in a call out by the French Institute of South Africa – show a connection to a multitude of historical worlds. This in turn creates connections to numerous imaginings of today and tomorrow. The poems range across languages, giving room for accurate expressions of South Africa as a country. Poems of complicated, powerful women weave through the pages. Personal tragedy sits alongside personal triumph, with poems to the country and the continent weaving between the two. This anthology speaks to all the complexity and spirit of this country, in the country’s own voices.

This anthology is produced through the continued poetry partnership between the French Institute of South Africa and impepho press, with the support of Total SA.

in the days after you left, the emptiness became our government. we owned a single mattress. we belonged to the floor. to the blunt charity of sleep.
