Abstract:The contributions to this volume explore repression and its expression in African and Black diasporic literature. While underscoring subsumption of repression, not its negation, as combative weapon of choice, the book does not call for a general conclusion as the various chapters stem from different theoretical underpinnings. Contents: 1. Francis Nyamnjoh's 'The disillusioned African: a philosophy of liberation (Yosimbom Hassan Mbiydzenyuy); 2. The playwright as whistleblower: drama and the expression of the repressed in Cameroon (Emmanuel Fru Doh); 3. Bill F. Ndi's 'Gods in the ivory towers': an expression of universal academic tragedy (Richard Evans); 4. Francis Nyamnjoh's 'Soul's forgotten': a rejection of poor education and failing democracy (Benjamin Hart Fishkin); 5. Nyamnjoh's 'Homeless waters': juvenile rebellion and old age recollection (Bill F. Ndi); 6. Rising from the ashes: conflict and repression in Bill F. Ndi's poetry (Antonio Jimenez-Munoz); 7. Yearning for a distance: prophetic narrative in Zora Neale Hurston's 'Jonah's gourd vine' (1934) (Rhonda Collier); 8. The plight of a woman expressed in Jing's 'Tale of an African woman' (Adaku T. Ankumah); 9. Emmanuel Fru Doh's 'Nomads: the memoirs of a southern Cameroonian': censorship, treachery and instability in former British southern Cameroons (Benjamin Hart Fishkin); 10. Francis B. Nyamnjoh's 'A nose for money': airing devoiced thoughts (Bill F. Ndi). [ASC Leiden abstract]
