This book is a refreshing and innovative reading of Dennis Brutus' poetry, underlining its concern for suffering humanity in the apartheid context and beyond. Through a cogent critical analysis of the poetry from a multifaceted perspective, the work brings to the fore the different motifs, strategies and artistry with which Brutus succeeds in initiating revolt through art. It explains how the poet's engagement with the poetics of place, apartheid laws, police brutality, questions of travel and language foregrounds these as tropes or metaphors for reinforcing the despicable apartheid image and influencing popular revolt against the system.
