Item description for Another Country by E Sweeny...
The author, writer and critic, proposes that an incursion into literature - land of the imagination - is not unlike travel to foreign lands, and is more egalitarian because it demands fewer outward requirements on the part of the reader. She sets her mission, or artistic manifesto - 'I believe in the creative ability of people' - into this context and henceforth presents a series of five pieces intending to stimulate the readier's interest in works of Nigerian and foreign writers such as Amadi, Achebe, Baldwin, Wordsworth and Tennyson. These pieces bridge modes of criticism and creative writing and comprise the author's own poetry, explanations of her methods of writing and the creative process. She reflects upon the relationship between parent and child, lovers and man and God in life and as presented in literature. The middle section includes a short story and some 'literary nonesense'. The remaining two parts are offerings around the associations of colour and the opposing sentiments of fear and courage, despair and hope, war and peace, and hatred and love.
