Description

Against a disturbing political backdrop and through an in-depth appraisal of selected illustrative texts from major genres-poetry, prose, and drama-Emmanuel Fru Doh presents the origins and growth of a young but potent literature. To him, Anglophone-Cameroon literature is a weapon in the hands of an oppressed English speaking minority in his native Cameroon, Africa, who were unfairly manipulated by the United Nations and Britain into a skewed federation in the name of an independence deal.
