Ernest Veyu: Poetics of Textual Transactions
Ken Scholars Publishing invites book chapters to be included in a forthcoming scholarly volume on intertextuality in the poetry of Ernest Veyu.
As a postcolonial African (Cameroonian) poet, the texts of Veyu exhibit multiple layers of connection with a multitude of texts. The textual dialogues between Veyu's texts and the broad range of other texts reflect not just "the anxiety of influence" (Harold Bloom) but more profound symbiotic connections with cultures, movements and styles.
This volume seeks to inspire scholarly debate through papers that examine the intertextual and interpersonal relationships between the works of Veyu and other texts. The assessment of textual connectivity involves analyzing (and juxtaposing) the original texts and contexts in relation to literary and aesthetic aspects or traditions.
Abstracts of 250 words (along with a brief 100-word bio), and complete chapters of 5000-6000 words should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for proposals: March 31st 2022.
