AFRICAN TEXTUALITIES<br>Texts, Pretexts and Contexts of African Literature<p>by Bernth Lindfors
AFRICAN TEXTUALITIES
Texts, Pretexts and Contexts of African Literature

by Bernth Lindfors

African literary texts can be approached in a variety of ways. They may be examined in isolation as verbal artifacts that have a unique integrity. They may be studied in relation to other texts that preceded and followed them. Or they may be seen against the backdrop of the time, traditions and circumstances that helped to shape them. In this book, all these approaches have been utilized, sometimes singly, sometimes in combination.

AFRICAN WRITERS AND THEIR READERS<br>Essays in Honor of Bernth Lindfors Volume II<p>Edited by Toyin Falola and Barbara Harlow
AFRICAN WRITERS AND THEIR READERS
Essays in Honor of Bernth Lindfors Volume II

Edited by Toyin Falola and Barbara Harlow

"Like its companion volume Palavers of African Literature, African Writers and their Readers is a magnificent and monumental tribute to Bernth Lindfors, the scholar who transformed African literary studies in North America. But his second volume is more than a tribute to a distinguished scholar-- it is a high powered exercise in critical scholarship, which in its choice of issues and methedologies, takes up many of the questions that Lindfors put at the forefront of scholarship on Africa and its literary traditions..."

by Clenora Hudson-Weems

ALA ANNUALS, Vol. 10
Tongue and Mother Tongue

Edited Pamela J. Olubunmi Smith and Daniel P. Kunene

Tongue and Mother Tongue is takes on two compelling challenges: the language question and the place and role of the mother tongue in African literature. This collection is the culmination of the fierce, decades-old debates on the question of African literature and its criticism. The fourteen essays, which range from a variety of critical and theoretical perspectives, have been organized in to five thematic categories whose sequence should be experienced as a continuous dialogue rather than a collection of discrete statements...
