about

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.
Emmanuel Fru Doh, a native of Cameroon, is professor in the Department of English at Century College.

Editorial Reviews

Emmanuel Fru Doh's book presents a studied analysis and interpretation of Anglophone Cameroon Literature. This book is without doubt a landmark intervention in Anglophone Cameroon literature and it not only answers many of the questions that surround it, but equally opens up the possibility for further discussions. It is therefore a foundational work upon which future debates will be built.
