  Critical Essays on « Cameroon Literature in English :
  The Novel and Drama »
   
           Since the publication in 1993 of the collection of essays Anglophone Cameroon Writing by Lyonga, Breitinger and Butake, the Cameroon literary landscape has been enriched with new titles in English, Especially in the genres of the novel and drama. Almost on a monthly basis, there are book launches particularly in Yaounde, Buea and Bamenda. However, this outburst of literary creativity has not, it seems to us, been matched by serious critical judgments which could serve both the creative writers and the general reading public. This book project is intended to fill that vacuum.
