why ‘the other feet’

Antipodes (Greek: ‘other foot’) is a phrase traditionally used in the modern West to denote the other side of the world, and by habit to denote the southern hemisphere – particularly its anglophone countries.

For the Greeks however, the phrase more accurately referred to the opposite part of the world to the speaker’s current location.

Rooted as English language art is in Western classicism, The Other Feet seeks to bring together two physically disparate elements of contemporary English language literature, for the edification and entertainment of the authors and their local audiences.
