Neo-African literature : a history of black writing by Janheinz Jahn( Book )

65 editions published between 1966 and 1971 in 5 languages and held by 1,678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chapters in this book classify the literature reflecting the overlap of African and Western cultures according to its content, stylistic features, and patterns of literary expression. Areas covered are (1) early writers of African descent; (2) the African scene--oral, Afro-Arabic, "apprentice" and "protest," and Southern Bantu literatures; (3) the American scene--19th century, "minstrelsy" and voodoo, the Negro spiritual, blues and calypso, the "Negro Renaissance," the "Golden Years"--1920's, the Depression, "indigenism" in Haiti, and "Negrism" in Cuba; and (4) new problems--the Negritude School and modern African literature. A bibliography of primary literature as well as some secondary sources follows each chapter, while an appendix provides information on magazines devoted to Africa's culture and Afro-American literature, and on literary statistics for sub-Saharan Africa, Afro-America, and translations of works into other languages.
