3: Traces of the Epic In Africa by K. P. WACHSMANN
Reader. DENYS HAWTHORNE
Produced by DOUGLAS CLEVERDON Epic poetry requires many ingredients; amongst them are heroic themes, composition in lines, great length, and historic associations. There is some evidence that the peoples of Africa were at one time or another inclined towards this art form, but conditions were not often favourable to the growth and survival of the epic. But the remaining traces are of interest to students of literature and music alike.

A short story written and read by Robert CREELEY
' It was a ridiculous time for anything. She couldn'really say that she loved him. and had to think quickly, which one. Her friend looked at her, her eyes were a little red. but the face was not for him. He took her hand. because he wanted something, and she let the pressure come. then relax, and squeezed back a little, and smiling, wondered again what would bocome of them ... '
