Moving Spirit

The Legacy of Dambudzo Marechera in the 21st Century

Edited by: Julie Cairnie, Dobrota Pucherova

This multimedia collection is inspired by the life and work of the Zimbabwean cult writer Dambudzo Marechera (1952-1987). The book demonstrates the growing influence of Marechera among writers, artists, and scholars worldwide. It 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.
