Abstract:

Taking inspiration from Tejumola Olaniyan's draft reflections on “Postmodernity, Postcoloniality and African Studies,” this essay explores central continental-African objections to the relevance of postcolonial criticism, raises issues with some of them, and negotiates a path through the more formidable ones to fashion an alternative for African literary discourse. It 'tests' this alternative with a discussion of Ngũgĩwa Thiong'o and Ngũgĩwa Mirii's I Will Marry When I Want.
