Book Description:
African literature, like the continent itself, is enormous and diverse. East Africa’s literature is different from West Africa’s which is quite different from South Africa’s which had different influences on it than North Africa’s. Africa’s literature is based on a widespread heritage of oral literature, some of which has now been recorded. Arabic influence can be detected as well as European, especially French and English. Legends, myths, proverbs riddles, and folktales form the mother load of the oral literature. This book presents an overview of African literature as well as a comprehensive bibliography, primarily of English language sources, accessed by subject, author and title indexes.
