Keywords:HIV/AIDS, Illness, Chapbook, Imaging, Imagine, Awareness
Literature performs the function of imagining health through imaging of illness and its challenges in African society. The domestication of the digital technology is re-enacting the community narrative in respect to health by virtue of persons coming together to imagine HIV/AIDS within titled anthology specifically for that pandemic. This they do within e-chapbook and through mixtures of genres within a titled anthology. Chapbooks seem to replace print anthologies as a result of its accessibility on the digital space. This paper through the application of the theory of historicism observes that art provides a nexus between health and well being in literature. It observes that Digital anthologies provide a fertile ground for thematic imaging of individual responses to sexual health. This paper illustrates how each writer in Vanguard Book of Sexual and HIV/AIDS Awareness imagines HIV/AIDS and how personas react to it.
