This multimedia collection inspired by the life and work of the Zimbabwean cult writer Dambudzo Marechera (1952-1987) demonstrates the growing influence of this author among writers, artists and scholars worldwide and invites the reassessment of his oeuvre and of categories of literary theory such as modernism, postmodernism and postcolonialism. Including a DVD with audio-visual creative contributions and rare archival material, this volume will be of interest to scholars and students of African, postcolonial and postmodernist literature and culture, as well as audio-visual artists, writers and biographers.
