This comparative literary study provides intriguing social and political issues and discusses the African sense of national identity, patriotism, and egalitarian ideals in stylistic terms. The book examines universal concerns and new trends in national literature with reference to academic discourse, aesthetic quality, the discovery of new ideas, and layers of poetic meanings. The indigenous genres are placed in a New Historicist context to show the way the literary landscape, cultural, political, and historical relationships are configured through foregrounding intellectual correlations. These combinations are empirically analyzed in terms of pre-modern, post-modern, and post-colonial events. (Series: African Languages - African Literatures.
