On the Language Debate

 “African poets have chosen to write in English or French sometimes because they feel that what they have to say can be better expressed in a language which had been developed for literary purposes for many hundreds of years; sometimes because what they have to say is for readers all over the continent of Africa and outside Africa; sometimes because they are anxious for poetic fame wider than the frontiers of their own country.” – A Book of African Verse(1964),  ed. Ed. J. Reed C.Wake

What do you think?

  1. for me it is better for you to write in your own native language. For the purpose of expressing you self freely and clearly that will understand better by you own people
