"This reader is designed for B.A. students majoring in the Amharic language. It includes sample works of modern writers starting with the first story by Afewerk Ghebre Jesus written in 1908 up to the writings of the early 2000s, which continue Amharic literature in various genres. The chrestomathy is supplemented with linguistic and cultural comments of lexical, grammatical and ethno-cultural nature. Short biographies of the writers are included. The textbook is intended for students, Masters of Arts and all those interested in Ethiopia. Ethiopian literature is justly considered young, though it is based on a very old cultural foundation. Its major benefit is the focus on an individual person displaying moral integrity and unity with the environment. That is why we belive in its succesful development in future."--Title page verso.
