Anglophone Liberian Literature: Primary Texts

Please use the Missing Texts form if you think that there's a text that meets one or more of the following criteria is missing from the list below:

  1. primary text written by a Liberian author (incl. diaspora authors);
  2. primary text centrally concerned with Liberia;
  3. secondary source that is particularly useful and/or relevant to the study of Liberian Literature.

Primary Texts (incl. Diaspora and Non-Liberian Authors)

Notes:

  • Entries marked with an asterisk (*) in the first column were written by 'clearly' non-Liberian authors (i.e. neither Liberian citizen nor members of the Liberian diaspora).
  • If the year is followed by a question mark (?), this means that it is only a rough estimate. For example, it is clear that Milton Nassau's poems were written in the early decades of the twentieth century, and probably during the 1920s. In the table below, the year is given as "1925 (?)."

On the Genre Terms Used in the Table

The aim is to keep the list of terms short and simple. The goal, in other words, is not nuanced analysis but a first, broad categorization. The nine labels used in the table are:

          1. Autobiography & Memoir           4. Essays & Speeches           7. Novel
  2. Children's Literature           5. Folklore & Oral           8. Poetry
  3. Drama*           6. Letters & Travel Writing           9. Short Story

 * "Drama" also includes radio plays, which have long been an important genre in Liberia.
