About the Book
This study reconsiders Soyinka’s contribution to the debate about African identity, exploring the various elements constituting his distinctive aesthetic and apprehension of African culture. It concentrates on his plays, his fiction and poetry and investigates his views on the relationship between myth, history, and modernity, primarily highlighting his conception of the nature of African post-colonial society and power. It also looks at Soyinka’s exploration of the metaphysical aspects of evil, particularly as manifested in political violence, and examines his belief in the irrepressibility of the human desire to transcend any form of political, spiritual and social oppression.
