Seasons of Harvest brings together prominent and emergent international scholars whose unity lies in the collective effort of sharing critical commentaries on neglected writers from Portuguese-speaking Africa with the rest of the world. Contributors on Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, and São Tomé-Príncipe include Niyi Osundare, Gerald Moser, Inocencia Mata, Gregory McNab, Jared Banks, Donald Burness, Niyi Afolabi, and George Alao.

Focusing on their place within a larger context of unheard voices of African experience, these essays are written by a wide range of authors such as Alda Lara, Orlando de Albuquergue, Orlando Mendes, Alda do Espirito Santo, Sum Marky, Ungulani Ba Ka Khosa, Lina Magaia, Paulina Chiziane, Lilia Momplie, Adelina da Silva, and young cultural producers like Xiphefo and Prométhée. They introduce the general reader and specialists alike to compelling issues of love, gender, race, class, culture, colonialism, oppression, national identity, narrative violence, and liberation. Here is an invigorating attempt to rescue silenced voices and return them to the visible level of the long drums and canons of the African literary festival.
