Product Description

"A Fitting Tribute to the artistry, proverbial strength and uncompromising voice of a committed writer and truth-teller, the collection of powerful and illuminating essays memorialize Ama Ata Aidoo's deep sense of history and consciousness of a feminism that is unyielding in its inscription of the balance and wisdom of Africa."-Obioma Nnaemeka - Indiana University, Indianapolis

"A volume that could not have come a moment too soon for the Dean of Letters, whose stylistic vibrancy and versatility are unmatched by any standards. The editors have finally filled an embarrassing gap in African feminist studies." -Ernest N. Emenyonu, Southern Connecticut State University, New Haven

This ambitious and comprehensive volume of essays, edited by two committed scholars, mirrors a collection of insights, analyses and approaches to the works by Ghana's foremost woman writer, who has prevailed for over thirty years on the African literature scene by her sheer tenacity of purpose and the freshness of her writing. Ama Ata Aidoo comes across as a sturdy, well-rounded, dignified and reputable writer of world class, not only in the originality, complexity and sophistication of her thoughts, but also in the diversity of the possibilities in her writing. Students of cultural politics, international relations, women's studies, history and African studies will find this anthology a compelling resource.
