It is well known that, in contemporary studies, the cultural and post-colonial critique mainly focuses on the context of art and literature. My paper highlights the importance of a new Werkimmanente Interpretation, which focuses on the text qua aesthetic process. Thus, in other words, the text will be considered as a living event, meaning an experience of senses and knowledge. The text should be the centre of different hermeneutic approaches which involve translation and comparison, reader’s reception, theories of knowledge, immanent interpretation of the text and literary language. Translation is not only a product, but a process of comprehension (incorporation) and restitution (incarnation) of a text through the constitution of an analogue. This paper intends to propose a multi-systematic mode of poetry analysis, related especially to the poetics of the Swahili writer Euphrase Kezilahabi.
