Dialogue and outrage in the literature of the african diaspora: Langston Hughes's Not Without Laughter, Lorraine Hansberry's A and Richard Wright's Black Boy¹ .

FI Mogu


Regularly, African Diaspora Literature projects characters that are faced with serious challenges that appear to threaten their very survival. Such characters usually express displeasure with issues affecting them and with the general scheme of things in their milieu. Often, such displeasure reveals itself through anger and other blatant and furious outbursts that may lead to violence. The expression of anger occurs mostly after attempts to resolve knotty issues through dialogue have failed.
