Intertextuality in Ba's So Long a Letter and Umunnakwe's Dear Ramatoulaye

I A Emenyi

Abstract




Intertextuality takes for granted the interdependence of literary texts because every artistic creation is a re-echoing of past knowledge. Mariama Ba's So Long A Letter and Ndubisi Umunnakwe's Dear Ramatoulaye are African examples. This work examines how Ba's So Long A Letter intertextualises with Umunnakwe's Dear Ramatoulaye by exploring the ideological positions of both writers as well as their legacies to African Literary scholarship
