Writing and Africa, Paperback / softback Book

Writing and Africa Paperback / softback

Part of the Crosscurrents series

Description

This volume reflects one of the new areas of English Studies as it broadens to take in non-western literatures, and places more emphasis on the contexts and broader notions of `writing'.

In discussing writing from and about Africa, this collection touches on studies in black writing, colonialism and imperialism and cultural development in the third world.

It begins by providing a historical introduction to the main regional traditions, and then builds on this to discuss major issues, such as oral tradition, the significance of `literature' as a western import, representations of Africa in western writing, African writing against colonialism and its themes and politics in a post-colonial world, popular writing and the representation of women.
