In a dozen essays, scholars of literature from Africa and North America explore the literary and political efforts of Saro-Wiwa (1941-95) who was executed by the Nigerian government during his fight to prevent the further exploitation of his Ogoni people by the Shell Oil Company. They begin with overviews of the political and economic situation, his place in it, and the practice of genocide in Nigeria. Then they look at the literary experiments, the public man, popular media, and seven poems. Appended are chronologies of his life and the Nigerian civil war, and an annotated bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Book Description Lynne Rienner Publishers Inc, United States, 1999. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The shocking execution of Ken Saro-Wiwa at the hands of the Nigerian government in 1995 stirred new interest in the many facets of his life - as novelist and short story writer, radio and television personality, publisher and entrepreneur, political and environmental activist. This interdisciplinary collection critically assesses Saro-Wiwa's exceptional life and work from a range of fresh perspectives. The authors examine Saro-Wiwa's literary output both in terms of literary criticism and within a political framework. They give equal attention to his more public roles, including public reaction within Nigeria to his work. A comprehensive, annotated bibliography of print and electronic resources on Saro-Wiwa is a valuable feature of the book. Seller Inventory # AAN9780894108839
