Edited by Ernest N. Emenyonu

  • Description

  • Reviews
Critics take stock of where African Literature has got to and where it is likely to go with the next generation of writers.
Contributors to this volume ask what are the new directions of African literature? What should be the major concerns of writers, critics and teachers in the twenty-first century? What are the accomplishments and legacies? What gaps remain to be filled, and what challenges are there to be addressed by publishers and the book industry? What are the implications for pedagogy in the new technological era?

ERNEST EMENYONU is Professor of the Department of Africana Studies University of Michigan-Flint.

"Makes an important contribution to the study of African literature, which contributors examine in light of a half century of education and re-education, the dismantling of myths and distortions, cultural re-affirmations, linguistic experimentations and the reclaiming of lost identities."
