Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "This is one of the rare studies of African literature to bridge the gap between North African and Sub-Saharan literature, two worlds that rarely meet in the minds of most specialists in the field of African literature . [it] is a valuable contribution to studies of African literature and society today. For this reason, it is a book that should be read by all who claim to be specialists in African literature." -- Comparative Literature Studies "This book is beautifully written in clear, elegant prose and provides an original, imaginative, and compelling argument regarding alternative modernities in twentieth-century Africa." -- Winifred Woodhull, author of Transfigurations of the Maghreb: Feminism, Decolonization, and Literatures "This is an excellent critical examination of some of Africa's most celebrated novels and the author approaches this rather complicated field with a unique commentary and balanced perspective." -- Chouki El Hamel, Arizona State University.

Inhaltsangabe: Of Irony and Empire is a dynamic, thorough examination of Muslim writers from former European colonies in Africa who have increasingly entered into critical conversations with the metropole. Focusing on the period between World War I and the present, "the age of irony," this book explores the political and symbolic invention of Muslim Africa and its often contradictory representations. Through a critical analysis of irony and resistance in works by writers who come from nomadic areas around the Sahara--Mustapha Tlili (Tunisia), Malika Mokeddem (Algeria), Cheikh Hamidou Kane (Senegal), and Tayeb Salih (Sudan)--Laura Rice offers a fresh perspective that accounts for both the influence of the Western, instrumental imaginary, and the Islamic, holistic one.
Inhaltsangabe: Examines the transformative power of irony in the creation of Muslim Africa.
