Editorial Description

 Written by a fellow Ghanaian, this book examines the strengths of Aidoo's work and the evolution of her concerns as an artist and an activist from a perspective the author terms "polylectic" criticism--a "reading against neocolonialism."  While challenging Western reading habits, Odamtten's approach corrects earlier misreadings of Aidoo's works by fusing the strands of gender, history, ideology, and literary convention.
