From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Angolan literature has its origins in the mid-19th century. The diversity of Angola's culture is reflected in the diversity of its literature, which traditionally has been combative and satirical.

As Angola was a colony of Portugal, it is a Lusophone country, though there are many distinct tribes and Portuguese isn't the first language of every Angolan. In 2006, Luandino Vieira was awarded the Camões Prize, though he declined it and the $128,000USD prize money for "personal and intimate reasons."[1][2]

Agostinho Neto, the first president of Angola, was a well-known poet.[3]
