dc.description.abstractAs the reader will soon find, the subject dealt with in this paper has no clear beginning or end. The biggest problem for me was to find a point where I could get into the subject and proceed toward a conclusion. Unfortunately, the subject doesn't lend itself easily to such an approach. All facets of the critical approach to the modern West African novel are inextricably bound up with one another, and a competent discussion of any one must assume a knowledge of all the others. The reader who comes to this paper totally unprepared will not feel the problems as much as the reader with a background. Fortunately for me (but as I endeavor to show in the paper, unfortunately for the modern novel), most of my readers will fall into the first category. My lack of success at making a straight line out of a circle will be less apparent to them than to myself.en_US
