Summary note
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. --Provided by publisher.
