African literature is enjoying much attention from the academic community. At the same time, its heritage and identity are becoming less clearly defined. Many African authors write in the languages of their colonial oppressors, and almost all of the best writers now live outside Africa, particularly in North America. So too, American publishers produce many of the works of African writers; much of the criticism of these works comes from American scholars; and with the possible exception of South Africa, many African countries have political climates detrimental to literacy. This book explores the issues presently confronting African literature. Expert contributors treat such topics as language, postcoloniality, women in African literature, canonicity, and historical and ideological concerns.New York: Simon and Schuster, 1967.
