Abstract

The article recalls the meetings and the relationship between the national Cuban poet Nancy Morejón and the South African exiled poet Keorapetse Kgositsile. A consideration of Morejón s engagement with Kgositsile as a fellow poet and her visit to South Africa shed new light on her poetic practice. It allows too, a reaffirmation of Kgositsile's uniquely South African voice and to highlight the reach and impact of his transnational status.The co-author of the article, Cynthia Gabbay, translated here some of Morejón´s texts related to South Africa in solidarity with the Anti-Apartheid struggle.
