EMERGING PERSPECTIVES ON CHINUA ACHEBE, VOL. I
OMENKA the Master Artist: Critical Perspectives on Achebe’s Fiction

Edited by Ernest N. Emenyonu

Some critical anthologies have been published on Achebe’s fiction at various stages of Achebe’s writing, but OMENKA is the first work of criticism in the 21st century which covers all of Chinua Achebe’s fictional writings up to the end of the 20th century. It is a compendium of 37 essays by eminent scholars from Africa, Europe, Canada and the United States. The essays provide global perspectives of Chinua Achebe as an artist with a proper sense of history and an imaginative writer with an inviolable sense of cultural mission and political commitment.

EMERGING PERSPECTIVES ON CHINUA ACHEBE, VOL. II
ISINKA, the Artistic Purpose: Chinua Achebe and the Theory of African Literature

Edited by Ernest N. Emenyonu and Iniobong Uko

In these essays, literary scholars from various parts of the world, attempt dynamically to assess and establish how much Chinua Achebe’s extra fictional ideas about African Literature or Literature in general, are justified in his own creative works. ISINKA is thus a logical sequel to OMENKA which examined the dimensions of Chinua Achebe’s achievements as Africa’s leading novelist of the 20th century...

EMERGING PERSPECTIVES ON DAMBUDZO MARECHERA

The Zimbabwean writer, Dambudzo Marechera, was regarded by some as mad and by others as a genius.

This new book is the first collection of critical essays devoted entirely to Marechera. Flora Veit-Wild and Anthony Chennells have brought together the work of scholars from Zimbabwe, South Africa, Italy, Nigeria, Germany and England to show the complextiy and variety of responses which Marechera's writing evokes.

EMERGING PERSPECTIVES ON KEN BUGUL<br>From Alternative Choices to Oppositional Practices<p>Edited by Ada Uzoamaka Azodo and Jeanne-Sarah de Larquier
EMERGING PERSPECTIVES ON KEN BUGUL
From Alternative Choices to Oppositional Practices

Edited by Ada Uzoamaka Azodo and Jeanne-Sarah de Larquier

"The present volume comprises fourteen chapters, an interview, testimonies, and an extensive works cited section. It touches on the wide range of feminist, postcolonial, and literary issues raised in her novels, issues addressed with a broad set of theoretical approaches. At the core of Bugul’s literary oeuvre, and of these essays, is an underlying ethical concern over the nature of the social fabric especially as it bears on the lives of women in Senegalese society. The collection represents a significant engagement with a major writer, one whose will to speak out has marked her generation.”

EMERGING PERSPECTIVES ON MARIAMA Bâ<p>Edited by Ada Uzoamaka Azodo
EMERGING PERSPECTIVES ON MARIAMA Bâ

Edited by Ada Uzoamaka Azodo

Inspired by Mariama Bâ's life and creative work, this volume celebrates her life and art. She is the winner of the first Noma Award for Publishing in Africa. Bâ's creative work is sparse, given her relatively short life, but compact, vivid, and dense. A long and complete bibliography of the vibrant critical reception of Bâ’s writings, put together by Renée Larrier, bears testimony to their status, depth, and canonical dimensions. There is practically no school curriculum in the United States that does not feature Bâ's texts either in the original French version or in the English translation.
