Overview

This is the first book in English devoted solely and specifically to the literature of Sao Tome and Principe. The three essays discuss themes that no critic in any language has dealt with to any serious degree.

Ossobo explores three literary themes of Sao Tome and Principe, themes that are unique to this African country
1).  Poetry and stories on the mythic bird of Sao Tome and Principe-Ossobo
2).  Literature that treats the massacre of 1953, often referred to as the massacre of Batepa
3).  Fernando de Macedo and his poetry and drama of the Angolar people, the only written literature on the Angolares, a fascinating people-Sao Tome’s Maroons.

The work concludes with an appendix of 23 poems from Sao Tome and Principe.
