n New Coin Poetry - 'Rampsteranterage' : Snot-Kop Poetry revisited
Head on Fire: Rants/Notes/Poems 2001-2011, Lesego Rampolokeng : review

Volume 49, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0028-4459



The literary oeuvre of Lesego Rampolokeng has continuously confounded critics and admirers alike. He has had a lasting impact in the years since he published his debut collection of poems, (COSAW, 1990) which launched a career that has not diminished with time. This latest collection however, is markedly different from the earlier ones from (COSAW, 1993), (Munich: Marino, 1998), (Gecko, 1999) and (Berlin: Pantolea, 2003 - reprinted in full as the first section in this volume). In the intervening years he also published two novels, (2004) and (2005). He is easily one of the most prolific of South African poets at any one time and has recently been a writer in residence at Rhodes University.
