Abstract

African American postmodern supernaturalism is the last stage in the development of African American literature, but also contemporary world literature in general. By embracing one's own African elements and enriching postmodern literature, African American supernaturalism experimented with the syncretism of the past and the future, tradition and futurism. Seeking for a new kind of literary expressionism, the African American writer strives to preserve ancient cultural features by combining them into something completely new and what separates them from the rest of world literature.
