This collection explores topical and current issues in indigenous African language literatures of South Africa. These include, among others, narratological elements of literature, language usage, poetry analysis, and song lyrics. Each scholar or pair of scholars present findings that are particular to their own research. This makes the collection a valuable source of knowledge penned in a diversity of writing styles across different literary genres. An innovative aspect of the work is that it combines both English and isiZulu material. Seventy per cent of the chapters are written in English and thirty per cent in isiZulu, a gesture towards encouraging research presentations in indigenous languages. Also of interest is that the chapter content covers traditional or largely obsolete forms such as folklore and essays. The scarcity of published books that discuss aspects and issues found in indigenous African language literatures is what prompted the publication of this collection.
