Summary

This collection provides a comprehensive formulation of what Irele calls the "African imagination" as manifested in the oral traditions and modern literature of Africa and the Black Diaspora. He illuminates works by Chinua Achebe, Wole Soyinka, Hampaté Bâ, and Ahmadou Kourouma, among others, and examines the growing presence of African writing in the global literary marketplace and the relationship between African intellectuals and the West.
