EARLY EAST AFRICAN WRITERS AND PUBLISHERS<p>Bernth Lindfors
EARLY EAST AFRICAN WRITERS AND PUBLISHERS

Bernth Lindfors

“Historical documentation becomes art when it is bold enough to transcend the linearity of time and place by an interacting subject. Bernth Lindfors is such a troubling and participating voice and narrator. His multithematic book Early East African Writers and Publishers combines the abundance of detailed information on the emergence of individual writers such as Ngugi wa Thiong'o, David Maillu, and Okot p'Bitek, the theoretical valuation of East African multilingual literary production coming out of the oral and the popular, and the transitive and interdependent relations of the writer, the translator, the publisher and the readership."

EARLY SOYINKA<P>by Bernth Lindfors
EARLY SOYINKA

by Bernth Lindfors

This book contains half a dozen essays on writings by Wole Soyinka composed prior to publication of his first books in 1963. These early works reveal his precocious talent as a writer of stories, dramas, essays, letters, humorous sketches and jokes, the argument being that they cannot be dismissed as juvenilia or immature scribblings for they already exhibit an impressive command of language as well as dexterous handling of techniques of characterization and plot construction. Later essays deal with formal aspects of the plays he published between 1963 and 1973

EARLY WEST AFRICAN WRITERS
Amos Tutuola, Cyprian Ekwensi & Ayi Kwei Armah

Bernth Lindfors

This book focuses on the first works produced by three talented West Africans who felt an urge to express themselves in print. These creative individuals were pioneers in a literary movement that gathered force and swept across Africa with remarkable speed in the latter half of the twentieth century, producing distinctive national literatures in new nation states that were in the process of freeing themselves from the legacy of colonial rule. Writers such as these helped to shape and reinforce that movement toward self-definition by creating works that were indisputably African

ECO-IMAGINATION<br>African and Diasporan Literatures and Sustainability<p>Edited by Irène Assiba d’Almeida, Lucie Viakinnou-Brinson and Thelma Pinto
ECO-IMAGINATION
African and Diasporan Literatures and Sustainability

Edited by Irène Assiba d’Almeida, Lucie Viakinnou-Brinson and Thelma Pinto

Over the years the conveners of the African Literature Association (ALA) annual Conference have organized their conference’s discussions around imaginative and relevant themes which engage the directions of contemporary literary studies.  The theme of the 2010 Conference, “Eco-Imagination: African and Diasporan Literatures and Sustainability,” follows this excellent tradition. If the world’s environmental concerns are still mainly a subject for scientists, economists and politicians, there is a growing sense that the Humanities should also address these concerns. Indeed, it should be the work of writers and artists to make sure that ecological opportunities and challenges are known, and to move people to act on that knowledge.
