A Reader's Guide to African Literature.
Zell, Hans M., Ed.; Silver, Helene, Ed.
This annotated bibliography lists 820 literary works by black African authors south of the Sahara writing in English and in French. Reference material, critical works, and anthologies (many by non-Africans) are also included. The bibliography--excluding reference and critical works and anthologies--is divided into two sections. "Writings in English," and "Writings in French." Within these sections the arrangement is by country and alphabetically by author. Also included are (1) a selection of politically committed literature in English, (2) a list of children's books, (3) a list of titles announced for publication just before the book went to press, (4) a selection of periodical articles on African literature in general, (5) a list of major and minor literary and cultural periodicals and magazines which include African literature and essays and reviews about it, (6) some brief biographies of prominent African writers, and (7) a list of addresses of publishers, booksellers, and dealers. An index is also included. (Author/DI)
