West African Literatures
Available in Stock
This study interweaves the analysis of West African fiction, drama and poetry with an exploration of the broader political, cultural and intellectual contexts within which West African writers work. Anglophone literatures form the central focus of the book, with comparative comments on vernacular literature, francophone writing and oral literatures and detailed discussion of selected francophone texts in translation (eg. Senghor, Tadjo, Beyala, BÔ and Sembene).
