Journal of African Literature and
3 comes with fourteen essays, commentaries and
reviews by contributors from Canada, United States, Ghana, Cameroon,
Nigeria, South Africa and the United Kingdom in what promises to become a
major referential guide to
critical appreciation of African literature.
Continuing the theme of Re-Imagining African Literature articles in this issue include critical reappraisals of the works of notable younger and older African writers such as Chinua Achebe, Wole Soyinka, JM Coetzee, Chin Ce, Dangaremgba, Vassanji, Ama Ata Aidoo, Mongo Beti to mention but a few.
In their preface the editors propose a wholistic approach to criticism of African literature in spite of its regional and national groupings and the reimagining of issues of African modernity in relation to contemporary definitions of the Black world.
