Abstract:This volume proves, against the backdrop of attitudes towards nations deemed 'ethnic minorities', that literature in Africa has lived up to the challenge of aesthetic imagination to form an active part of world cultural discourse. Contributions by P. Ugor (on Margaret Laurence), I. Bello-Kano (on Jospeh Conrad's 'Congo Diary'), C.J. Okolo (in French, on Haitian writer Jacques Roumain), F.I. Mogu (on the feminist impulse in African literature), M.S.C. Okolo (on Ngugi's Marxist aesthetics), a chat session on functionalism and African literature, and a review of Abubakar Gimba's novel 'Innocent victims' (1988). [ASC Leiden abstract]
