9780143185406: Mhudi

Mhudi, the first full-length novel in English by a black South African, was written in the late 1910s. A romantic epic set in the first half of the nineteenth century, the main action is unleashed by King Mzilikazi’s extermination campaign against the Barolong in 1832 at Kunana (nowadays Setlagole), and covers the resultant alliance of defeated peoples with Boer frontiersmen in a resistance movement leading to Battlehill (Vegkop, 1836) and the showdown at the Battle of Mosega (17 January 1839). Plaatje’s eponymous heroine is an enduring symbol of the belief in a new day.

Review:

"... much more than a story of tribal wars. It is an allegory of the possibility of ethnic and racial unity, and of gender equality." --Phaswane Mpe

"When I first read this beautiful work, I was absolutely in despair. I needed to copy the whole book out by hand so as to keep it with me. It is more than a classic; there is just no book on earth like it. All the stature and grandeur of the writer are in it." --Bessie Head

"A must for all students of South African literature. Further, it gives us insight into the writings of one of our great political leaders." --Mazisi Kunene
