Wole Soyinka 39198
ÃOEsarà, a Voyage Around "Essay"
Random House, 1989. Paperback. Pp: 262. In 1984, two years after writing his classic childhood autobiography Ak, Wole Soyinka opened a tin box that had belonged to his father, a schoolteacher during Nigera's Colonial period. The simple contents of this box - "a handful of letters, old journals with jottings, tax and other levy receipts, minutes of meetings and school reports, program notes of special events" - provide the fuel for this second installment of Soyinka's memoirs: a son's fictionalized "voyage" into the life and times of his father.

Wole Soyinka 39198
The Open Sore of a Continent. A Personal Narrative of the Nigerian Crisis
Oxford University Press, 1996. Hardcover. Pp: 170. On November 10, 1995, the Nigerian military government under General Sani Abacha executed dissident writer Ken Saro-Wiwa along with eight other activists, and the international community reacted with outrage. From the Geneva based International Commission of Jurists (who called the executions a criminal act of state murder) to governments around the world (including the United States) who recalled their ambassadors, to the Commonwealth of Former British Colonies, who suspended Nigeria from the group, the response was quick, decisive, and nearly unanimous: Nigeria is an outcast in the global village. The events that led up to Saro-Wiwa's execution mark Nigeria's decline from a post-colonial success story to its current military dictatorship, and few writers have been more outspoken in decrying and lamenting this decline than Nobel Prize laureate and Nigerian exile Wole Soyinka. In The Open Sore of a Continent, Soyinka, whose own Nigerian passport was confiscated by General Abacha in 1994, explores the history and future of Nigeria in a compelling jeremiad that is as intense as it is provocative, learned, and wide-ranging. He deftly explains the shifting dramatis personae of Nigerian history and politics to westerners unfamiliar with the players and the process, tracing the growth of Nigeria as a player in the world economy, through the corrupt regime of Babangida, the civil war occasioned by the secession of Biafra under the leadership of Chief Odumegwu Ojukwu, the lameduck reign of Ernest Sonekan, and the coup led by General Sani Abacha, arguing that "a glance at the mildewed tapestry of the stubbornly unfinished nation edifice is necessary" to explain where Nigeria can go next. And, in the process of elucidating the Nigerian crisis, Soyinka opens readers to the broader questions of nationhood, identity, and the general state of African culture and politics at the end of the twentieth century. Here are a range of issues that investigate the interaction of peoples who have been shaped by the clash of cultures: nationalism, power, corruption, violence, and the enduring legacy of colonialism. In a world tormented by devastation from Bosnia to Rwanda, how do we define a nation: is it simply a condition of the collective mind, a passive, unquestioned habit of cohabitation? Or is what we think of as a nation a rigorous conclusion that derives from history? Is it geography, or is it a bond that transcends accidents of mountain, river, and valley? How do these varying definitions of nationhood impact the people who live under them? Soyinka concludes with a resounding call for international attention to this question: the global community must address the issue of nationhood to prevent further religious mandates and calls for ethnic purity of the sort that have turned Algeria, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Sri Lanka into killing fields. Soyinka brings a lifetime of study and experience to bear on his writing, combining the skills of a poet and playwright with the astute political observations of a seasoned activist. An important and timely volume, The Open Sore of a Continent will be required reading for anyone who cares about Africa, human rights, and the future of the global village. ISBN: 9780195105575.

Bookcraft, 2004. Paperback. Pp: 269. This beautifully designed and produced picture biography of Wole Soyinka, published in honor of his 70th birthday in 2004. Soyinka is perhaps Africa's most brilliant cultural ambassador and critic. A notable commentator on world affairs, in 1986 he was the first African to win the Nobel Prize For Literature. And, in 2004 he delivered the BBC Reith lectures. Featuring some 600 photographs, dating from 1934 until the present day, from many sources close to home, the international press, and from individuals and institutions, the work traces the extraordinarily full life that Soyinka continues to lead. It considers him in the guises of the creative genius, activist, celebrity, "citizen of the world" and as a man of many laurels. Pictorially, the work documents his life from his childhood, through his decades' involvement in creative work and political turmoil, to his numerous public and personal engagements in later life. Many photos illustrate his life in the theatre and his plays, as well as the real dramas of his life: the time spent abroad, and his engagement in the political struggle for justice, often at the risk of his own life. The book includes examples of his creative achievements in the poetic medium, an extract from his Nobel lecture, and many photographs of his art collection. Fellow writers, colleagues, friends, and family members from Nigeria and farther afield were commissioned to write on various aspects of Soyinka and his life. There are pieces or citations from the late Bola Ige, Abiola Irele, Femi Johnson, Okey Ndibe, Ulli Berer. Martin Banham, Ben Okri, Femi Osofisan, Justice Kayode Esho. Ngugi wa Thiongo, and Nadine Gordimer. In the memorable final tribute, fellowNigerian poet and scholar, Niyi Osundare, acclaims Soyinka as a generous, resilient, and lucky man, in spite of the appalling circumstances he has had thrust upon him. He characterizes him as a "rooted cosmopolitan." and as being "to Africa's literature what Mandela is to its politics.". ISBN: 9789782030429. Cond./Kwaliteit: Goed.
