This is a stinging critique of some of the dominant trends in contemporary African literature and literary criticism. It subjects neo-colonial literary criticism typified by such ‘experts’ as Gerald Moore, Charles Larson, Adrian Roscoe, Eustace Palmer and Wole Soyinka to critical analysis and exposes their attempts to impose a Western hegemony upon African Literature and its criticism. The authors concretize their critique by highlighting the aims and techniques of some Pan-African masters of literature.
