AFRICA AND TRANS-ATLANTIC MEMORIES:
Literary and Aesthetic Manifestations of Diaspora and History

Edited by Naana Opoku-Agyemang, Paul E. Lovejoy and David V. Trotman

The trans-Atlantic slave trade and the concomitant enslavement of Africans created an enduring connection between Africa and the scattered communities of peoples of African origins in the Americas and elsewhere. These tragic events of slavery have profoundly influenced the literary imagination, whether in Africa, Europe or the Americas. The authors in this collection explore the ways in which trans-Atlantic constructions of this historical experience find expression in the literary mode. The essays examine the ways that writers and performers have used a variety of

AFRICAN LITERATURE TODAY, Vol. 15<br>Women in African Literature<p>Edited by Eldred Durosimi Jones, Eustace Palmer & Marjorie Jones
AFRICAN LITERATURE TODAY, Vol. 15
Women in African Literature

Edited by Eldred Durosimi Jones, Eustace Palmer & Marjorie Jones

This issue of African Literature Today is entirely devoted to African women writers and to the presentation of women in African Literature.

This is a recognition of two important facts. Firstly, that African women writers, as a number of articles show, have been neglected in male-authored studies and journals. Secondly that the last ten years or so have at last, despite all sociological factors against them, shown a blossoming of accomplished works by African women writers.

AFRICAN LITERATURE TODAY, Vol. 16<br>Oral and Written Poetry in African Literature<p>Edited by Eldred Durosimi Jones, Eustace Palmer & Marjorie Jones
AFRICAN LITERATURE TODAY, Vol. 16
Oral and Written Poetry in African Literature

Edited by Eldred Durosimi Jones, Eustace Palmer & Marjorie Jones

Poetry is very much a growing concern in Africa. The contemporary poet is continuing a long tradition of poetry which in many places pre-dated the advent of writing. The enthusiasm for traditional poetry in Kenya and other parts of Africa has institutionalized the oral form in the written form.

The writing poet may well pine for the central position which the griot once occupied in society. But poetry has been and still is a fighting weapon. The poets too often speak from prison -Brutus, Soyinka Jacinto.

AFRICAN LITERATURE TODAY, Vol. 17
The Question of Language in African Literature

Edited by Eldred Durosimi Jones, Eustace Palmer & Marjorie Jones

Most African writers are at least bilingual, speaking an African language and writing in an acquired one... How adequately do poets, novelists, playwrights and short story writers use their adopted languages of English and French?... To what extent do their African language backgrounds influence or even enrich their achievement in their adopted languages?... Do they still use their indigenous languages to express contemporary reality?

AFRICAN LITERATURE TODAY, Vol. 18
Orature in African Literature

Edited by Eldred Durosimi Jones, Eustace Palmer & Marjorie Jones

African novelists, playwrights and poets, even when they are writing in one of the colonial languages, draw on their rich ethnic bases. These resources provide ideas, themes and linguistic delight. The myriad languages of the continent, although used today mainly for workday communication, have through the centuries been vehicles for the oral artistic verbal compositions and transmission now formalized as orature'.

AFRICAN LITERATURE TODAY, Vol. 20
New Trends and Generations in African Literature

Edited by Eldred Durosimi Jones & Marjorie Jones

Professor Eldred Jones says 'African literature continues to be intensely political and seems destined to remain so for some time. The writers are in the thick of the fight for the true liberation of their countries, a position which is still fraught with dangers.' He believes that 'it is is possible to distinguish in the literatures of most countries pre-independence from post-independence literature but only as trends rather than as sudden dramatic breaks.'
