NEW BLACK AND AFRICAN WRITING Vol. 2 is our concluding edition of a series that has featured many critical entries and reviews on canonical African fiction, poetry, drama and non-fiction. This second edition explores intricacies of relationships and associations, the recurrent tropes for the interpretation and understanding of historical connections, and the shaping of thought brought into fictional and cultural renditions that are evolving and continually reassessed although around the periphery of older canons. The quest for a meaningful heuristic for approaching contemporary arts is almost totally redefined by the contributions of eminent scholars of our time whose balancing and correspondence create room for complementarity of values and toward cultural understanding and value appreciation in contemporary society.

Prefatory Note       our is concluding edition of a series that has featured ma ny critical entries and reviews on canonical African fiction, poetry, drama and nonfiction. With the unique conc ern with authors and their work we have moved beyond th e texts and beyond conventional literary categorisations to investigate progress and aesthetics in African and AfricanAmerican writings along fairly original and indigenous African philosophy, illuminating significant psychological, spiritual and ethical values that dominate centuries of ancient and modern African and African American thought. In our first volume we had noted that the celebration of Black writing in the fifties and sixties had seen her writers turning from old problems of colonialism and racial discrimination to new issues of political independence as scholars had earlier noted. The trend has survived twenty first century African writing in its concern with t he historical and political experiences of modern Afri can republics. This second edition explores intricacies of

relationships and associations, the recurrent tropes for the interpretation and understanding of historical connections, and the shaping of thought brought into fictional a nd cultural renditions that are evolving and continual ly reassessed although around the periphery of older canons. Our lead essay, in this instance, shows how Toomer created a new idiom which allowed him to express th e more immediate and intricate complexities of the African American experience. In consonance, the new writing s from Africa showcased in this volume may eventually provoke the desired curiosity about processes of literary tradition and genius within a motherhive of cultura l legacies that have spanned several decades of creat ive virtuosity by Africa’s prodigious talents. The quest for a meaningful heuristic for approaching contemporary arts is almost totally redefined by the contributions of em inent scholars of our time. In line with the searchlight on rediscovery and revalidation of ancient values and traditions we ha ve garnered insights into transnational, racial, cultural and gender relations in which specific interests and problems are addressed with awareness of variety and differe nce. Thus we have thrown the light on issues of gender, history, language, nature and environment with the works envisioning the articulation of self and the reconstruction or contestation of history for communal uplifts and social transformation. The comparisons of authors and their oeuvre which emerge from this historic enterprise satisfies the quest for diligent assessment of Africa’s creative literature alongside vision, aesthetic and progress of the nationalities in varying shades of creative consciousness.

What has been called here an examination of literar y cultures, whether of European, American or African antecedents, is as much profound as the vistas of artistic luminance regarding these ebullient crafts from our hemisphere. Such balancing and correspondence, as stated by an enlightened member of this forum, creates room for complementarity of values hopefully marking the forward movement toward cultural understanding and value appreciation in contemporary society. 
