The Nature, Origin and Evolution of Modern African Poetry

Various phases have emerged in the development of Modern African poetry, each with its poets and ideology. These phases are the pioneer phase, the modernist phase and the contemporary phase. This paper swiftly traces the origin, development and features of what today is called modern African poetry. It treats Modern African Poetry as an offspring of the African oral traditions and the African colonial experience, and as a reactionary tool against the whips of neo-colonialism in African states.
