Interrogating African Literature from Post Colonial Identities

by the African Library of Critical Writing

Post Colonial Identities is a collage of works which revisit the emergence of divergent regional and national groupings in African Literature along history and contact with the West.

Editors Smith and Ce have aimed at collating arguments substantiating the cultural uniformity of Africa in view of literary and cultural movements, while lending interdisciplinary insights to the generality of Africa’s prolific body of literature along a complexity of twentieth century history.

Recognising the complexity of Black cultures have helped to understand the psychological relationships between Africa and her Diaspora, they insist.

Postcolonial Identities also studies dialogue and transition in recent oeuvres, noting the preponderance of dialogic art in the manipulation of characters among some distinctive new voices of African fiction.

The compendium of critical discourses also interrogates the art of writing and talking back, the Trojan alternatives of colonial experience, the desolate realities of post colonial heritage in Africa and the existential maturation that might come within an African modernity that seems perennially victimized by the colonial encounter.

An important cultural evaluation appears in ‘eclectic’ oeuvres which, with the inclusion of hitherto exclusive forms (poetry and fiction) as one whole movement of dialogue, transition and memory, adds an important dimension to understanding some remarkable young voices from Africa.

Some counterpoints of the volume can be seen in entries which differ in their opinions on the craft of post colonial writers of Indian and African ethnicities, allied with the problems of African modernity in the ‘Black Atlantic’.
