Culture and Hermeneutics: Achebe through American Eyes.

Community Review, v11 n1-2 p19-25 Fall-Spr 1990-91
Finds the commentaries of U.S. critics on the works of Chinua Achebe and other African writers ethnocentric, misinformed, and devoid of cogent analysis. Advocates a microscopic sociocultural contextualization of the works, emphasizing the nuances, history, and specifications of the African milieu. Discusses Achebe's special place in reading lists in U.S. universities. (DMM)
