In October 1972, our Czech-written book Literatury eerne Afriky (Literatures of Black Mrica) was published in Prague, presenting a survey of an extensive field. The publication, which was signed at that time by all three authors, differed from most contemporary introductions to the study of Mrican literatures in a threefold way: a) The authors attempted to cover various literacy and literary efforts in the area roughly delimited by Senegal in the west, Kenya in the east, Lake Chad in the north and the Cape in the south. We were well aware-even at that time-that neither technically nor linguistically would it be possible to cover all literary efforts within that area. We did try, however, to include in our survey both the literacies and literatures written in the Indo-European linguae francae (English, French, Portuguese) and in at least several of the major African languages of the area. We did not attempt an exhaustive description, but wished, rather, to show the mutual relationships which emerge, if the literatures of thii\ area, written either in the major linguae francae or in the African languages, are studied not as isolated phenomena, but as mutually complementary features. b) As two of us were linguists and one was a literary historian, we did not limit our analysis of the developing literacies and literatures to the purely cultural and literary aspects. Our intention waR to deal-whcre and if it was relevant-not only with the process of African literary development, but also with the simultaneous, complementar.

Although African literatures in English and French are widely known outside Africa, those in the African languages themselves have not received comparable attention. In this book a number have been selected for survey by fourteen specialist writers, providing the reader with an introduction to this very wide field and a body of reference material which includes extensive bibliographies and biographical information on African authors. Theoretical issues such as genre divisions are discussed in the essays and the historical, social and political forces at work in the creation and reception of African literature are examined. Literature is treated as an art whose medium is language, so that both the oral and written forms are encompassed. This book will be of value not only to readers concerned with the cultures of Africa but to all those with an interest in the literary phenomena of the world in general.

Joanna Skelt is currently the City of Birmingham Poet Laureate, UK. This collection presents poems around the theme of the central core of her worldview: the inter-connectedness of cultures and peoples. From the multicultural communities of Birmingham depicted with deep empathy, to her times spent in Africa, she reflects on the differences of peoples and sameness of the human experience; and on her perceptions of the beauties of place in all their myriad manifestations, as in the title poem: "The great wheel turns into 2014, another archway and races on...Each new year we stop, link hands sweep the past aside as if it were easy to rejuvenate, rebuild, reinvent ourselves as if it were easy to forgive". Addressing the challenges and realities of our world, she sees hope in the "glorious and extraordinary merging and transcending of difference". Joanna's work and readings reveal a passionate engagement with the world around her (and beyond) through its many levels and layers. It is perhaps not surprising that her own story, losses and loves have been deeply linked to this ongoing narrative.

Inspired by current realities in Nigeria, This Tragic Charade lends a voice to sensitive Nigerian issues like corruption and patriotism with strong sentiments. Poet Tonyi Amba-Ambaiowei was born and raised in Nigeria, so he has had plenty of time to observe its beauties and its horrors, which he now eloquently shares via imagery and verse. His poems recapture intriguing traditional Ijaw folklore as well as contemporary experiences, illustrated by a selection of art that showcases the truly rich cultural heritage of Africa’s most populous black nation. The artists featured are masters of their craft, and their works display a variety of contemporary themes with strong visual expressions. Tonyi is driven by his social conscience and passion for traditional values. He writes to his beloved fatherland, in dire need of patriotic revolution. He writes also to feel better, in memory of the numerous times his hopes were dashed and adversities seemed to reign. Where emotional power meets sensory impact and art meets the written word, This Tragic Charade illuminates a different culture and its customs, in need of remembrance.
