Ghananian Literature is a scholarly and very valuable collection surveying the Ghanian literatures and their critical reception until the present decade. World Literature Today Ghana, one of the smaller countries in Africa, is a linguistically and culturally pluralistic society that has had a disproportionately large impact on the rest of Africa. Although English is the official language, works are also published in vernacular languages. This comprehensive introduction to the literature of Ghana is organized by type of literature--oral art, popular literature, and elite, primarily English-language literature. Some essays appear for the first time; all reflect the wide range of Ghana's creative writing.
