In the southern winter ofoutside the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Zambia, a bright orange banner advertised the forthcoming production of a student play. A few dozen paces away, the University's main library houses manuscripts of other plays written and produced by the students, as well as many other Zambian literary texts in several languages.
Just outside the campus, the building of Chikwakwa — the pioneering people's theatre active in the s and 70s — still stands. In the streets, bookshops, shopping malls and churches of Zambia's capital city, there is plenty of evidence that the culture-loving spirit of the university students is shared by many others.
This bibliography of Zambian writing in English is, to the best of my knowledge, the first since John Chileshe's pioneering effort. In compiling it, I have done my best to internalize and echo this laudable spirit of cultural pride. Zambian written literature in English is not large and not much of it is or has been globally marketable.
However, rather than see this lack as a symptom of literary 'underdevelopment', I choose to read Zambian writing in English as the embodiment of what might be called a literariness of crisis.
For much of its history, written literary texts from Zambia have been produced by a tiny cultural elite, which was prevented by economic and political circumstances from specializing in, or professionalizing, the practice of producing English-language writing. Such circumstances have produced a body of work in which the aesthetic functioning of texts is not separate from their non-aesthetic, or utilitarian, functioning. For this reason, the present bibliography which covers texts produced between and deploys a range of genre designations.
The generic continuum spanning referential and non-referential, as well as utilitarian and non-utilitarian textual genres, is particularly clearly visible in contemporary Zambia, and I have sought to locate listed texts on that continuum. Such a listing of works should, above all, be seen as un-fixed and fluid. As a marker of fluidity, there are 'rough edges' that have been deliberately left visible around the field of published texts in the English language.
However defined, "Zambian literature in English" must be seen as seamlessly continuous with several other textual fields: among them are the unpublished, yet publicly-circulating, texts in English represented here by Medard Kasese's radio play, housed and catalogued at the University of Zambia library ; writings in indigenous languages such as Alick Musonda's novel in Bemba, its title deliberately left untranslated here ; oral texts mediated here by collections of proverbs and tales and translations from texts in indigenous languages, such as those by Mukuni and Chongo.
The listed texts were published both in and outside South-East Africa, and they cover a wide spectrum of permanence and formality of publication. Since the state-sponsored publishing company Neczam The National Educational Company of Zambia, the publishing arm of the Kenneth Kaunda Foundation was discontinued in the late s, and its successor, ZEPH Zambian Educational Publishing House encountered serious financial difficulties not long after that, authors such as George Musonda and Grieve Sibale have often had to arrive at publishing arrangements whose creativity is not adequately expressed by the sometimes-derogatory term 'samizdat'.
The small minority of firmly canonized texts such as Dominic Mulaisho's The Tongue of the Dumb are assured of continuous re-publication. On occasion, re-publication has been both problematic and opportunistic: the novel Return of the Innocent by the Zimbabwe-born author Bill Saidi, was re-published in Zambia without his knowledge or consent. From the early days of Zambia's independent nationhood, the identities of some of its most prominent literary practitioners have been self-consciously transnational: hence the frequency of the descriptor 'from Zambia' as opposed to national designation 'Zambian' in the titles and sub-titles of publications listed here.
This explains the presence in this bibliography of Michael Etherton's adaptation of a translation of Ferdinand Oyono's The Houseboy which arguably became a Zambian play by virtue of its landmark performance at Chikwakwa theatre and Alexandra Fuller's Scribbling the Cat whose adventure-style narrative turns out closely to resemble many local publications. It also explains why Zimbabwean publications of works by Bill Saidi and one-time Zambian resident Stephen Chifunyise are not listed.
A bibliography thus conceived is, by definition, unfinished. It is hoped that the list published here will allow its users to construct their own literary meanings of 'Zambia', and the Zambian meanings of 'literature'.
What is at stake in doing so is our appreciation of the cultural dynamics of the South-Eastern African region as a whole.London, This document is a response to a need perceived while teaching in the School of Performing Arts, University of Ghana, during In addition to primary material and articles on the theatre in Ghana, it lists reviews of Ghanaian play-texts and itemizes documents relating to the Ghanaian theatre held in my own collection.
I have also brought included references to material on the evolution of the literary culture in Ghana, and to anthropological studies. The whole reflects an awareness of some of the different ways in which 'theatre' has been defined over the decades, and of the energies that have been expended in creating archives and check-lists dedicated to the sister of arts of music and dance.
It works, with an 'inclusive' bent, on an area that focuses on theatre, drama and performance studies. When I began the task I found existing bibliographical work, for example that of Margaret D. Patten in relation to Ghanaian Imaginative Writing in Englishimmensely useful, but it only covered part of the area of interest.
Resources for the study of local theatre had not been catalogued, and there was a distressing ignorance among the student body about sources and history. Many knew little about what had been happening in the theatre in Ghana or about what had been written.
I found John Mensah-Sarbah's observation reproduced above very pertinent. What follows is a work in progress, a partly annotated bibliography from which a variety of strands could, and I hope will, be plucked. Additional research needs to be undertaken, and I hope information about new entries and, when necessary, corrections to existing ones will be sent to me at the address below.
At this point, it is particularly apparent that the back numbers of certain publications must be thoroughly investigated, that the memories of those involved in Ghanaian theatre must be tapped, and that the files of theatre groups must be sifted. Indeed, during my eight months in Ghana duringI edited a School of Performing Arts Newsletter that aimed to continue the tradition.bibliografie toevoegen in yxh.albac14971.pw
It provided coverage of productions put on in Legon and Accra, and published articles that filled in some gaps about the recent past. Charles Angmor and Karl Richard Priebe are among those who have produced substantial surveys of the theatre in Ghana.
Anyone wanting an overview of the history might start with them. This publication is offered to all those who were members of the Legon 7 in the late sixties and early seventies, and for those who were in the School of Performing Arts during the first part of Since 18 November when the first Enuanom edition appeared, new entries have come to my attention and what may be considered revised and up-date 'editions' have been prepared.
These have been issued by Nolisment Publications and made available on disc. Distribution continues. For example, in a copy on disc was deposited at the School of Performing Arts Library. In undertaking a work of this kind one incurs many debts. Where interviews are recorded or archives acknowledged, thanks are implied to those interviewed and those in charge of collections.
Among those who have helped fill in details or add to the collection of documents, I would like to recognise here assistance from Michael Anderson, Wilfred Court, Eric and Auriole Earle, supportive members of Ghana School Aid, who have helped with details of, for example, the productions put on by the British Council Players. Evans Oma Hunter and former colleagues at the University of Ghana have been among the Ghanaian theatre enthusiasts who have made material available.
Work has continued, and I have raided bibliographies for additional references. Publications by John Collins and Catherine Cole have been particularly inspirational.Hvilke personer er med i historien? Personkarakteristik af Tinke og Laurus.

His books have spawned related media, such as graphic novels and short story collections. Riordan's first full-length novel was Big Red Tequilawhich became the first book in the Tres Navarre series. His big breakthrough was The Lightning Thiefthe first novel in the five-volume Percy Jackson series, which placed a group of adolescents in a Greco - Roman mythological setting. Riordan was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. He received his teaching certification in those subjects from the University of Texas at San Antonio.
Rick married Becky Riordan in on the couple's shared birthday. Riordan has created several successful book series. He conceived the idea for the Percy Jackson series as bedtime stories about ancient Greek heroes for his son Haley. Riordan published the first novel in the series, The Lightning Thiefin Four sequels followed, with the last, The Last Olympianin Prior to Percy JacksonRiordan had written the Tres Navarres series, a series of mystery novels for adult readers.
His Percy Jackson and the Olympians series features the titular twelve-year-old who discovers he is the modern-day son of the ancient Greek god Poseidon.
Twentieth Century Fox purchased the film rights and released a feature film in Riordan also helped create the children's book series The 39 Clues. Published individually first, then as an anthology titled Demigods and Magicians in The imprint is called "Rick Riordan Presents" and was launched in March It is headed by Riordan's editor, Stephanie Owens Lurie.
Lurie said that Riordan had been approached about an imprint several years ago but initially dismissed the idea because of his heavy workload. Later, he reported back that he had been "toying with the idea" and was "willing to go forward with a publishing line that was not a brand extension for his own work but a platform for Riordan to bring other great writers to the attention of his vast and loyal audience.
The imprint will not publish books written by Riordan, "whose role will be closer to curator". If I feel like I can recommend them [to my readers] Lurie expressed hopes that the imprint will help satisfy Riordan fans without asking the author to write more than his usual two books a year.
