In this article I wish to engage seriously with Mazisi Kunene and his place in South African and African literary histories, through an analysis of what is arguably his best-known work, 'Emperor Shaka the Great' (1979). I suggest the real possibilities and strengths of this poem, while acknowledging the often contradictory 'structures of feeling' that inform and impel the poem.
