When it was first published as a special issue of the prestigious theory journal Poetics Today, the collection was named Best Special Issue of 2001 by the Council of Editors of Learned Journals - a body affiliated with the Modern Languages Association (MLA).

The judges had the following to say about the collection:

'What finally characterises the best... is a publishing design that. . . brings together a community of scholars . . . |and that] realises the potential of a publishing project, as opposed to good topics which did not mature significantly beyond a proceedings collection . . . Instead of the usual tactic of canonising a national or regional literature, or taking the measure of an existing tradition, this collection sets up a dialectic between South Africa's impossibly heterogeneous literary tradition, and its position as a literary/cultural symbol in Europe and the First World . . . Instead of making the job even more impossible, this somehow clarifies the peculiar multidirectional traffic that makes the question of South African culture a matter of global interest.'
