This thesis examines contemporary South African Poetry In English. South African post-Sharpeville poetry is fraught with peculiarities of style, form and subject-matter, and the thesis primarily focusses on revealing how the poets' techniques bring out the messages. The approach will in the main be both centripetal and centrifugal, and depth of coverage may in some instances compromise breadth of coverage, or vice versa. Special attention is given to the poetry of Oswald Mtshali, Sipho Sepamla, Wopko Jensma and Peter Horn. Space and time constraints have imposed some limitations as to the inclusion or non-inclusion of poets' works, and consequence has not been the sole consideration.
