African literature reviews is a community of scholars who are committed to the exploration of literary works focusing on the African lifestyle.

African lifestyle has evolved greatly bringing to focus concepts and issues that were not a ‘public’ reality within the continent a number of decades ago. Contemporary issues unavoidably call for a shift in the creation and presentation of literature in order to effectively address the same.

However, the shift in creation and presentation of African Literary work does not necessarily rule out the relevance of works and ‘literatures’ created and presented by pioneers of African Literature. On the contrary, it is a ‘building-stone’ added to the larger structure that is eventually African Literature.

African Literature Reviews holds as its tenet, the belief that a holistic approach to the evaluation of contemporary African issues is based on a merger of old and new approaches towards African Literary creation and presentation.

All literary works featured on African Literature Reviews are examined against the stated belief.

The interpretation of any given literature is given to bias as per the forces that influence on the reader.
