Achebe: The Man and His Works uses the critical essay format to assess Chinua Achebe as a person, a writer and the inaugurator of the literary tradition of cultural nationalism. It progressively and thematically analyses his novels and works, comparing them with those of African literary and cultural groundbreakers in the Diaspora, including the pioneering works of Olaudah Equiano and Zora Neale Hurston The book is a unique and fresh addition to the body of writings on Africa's most respected novelist, widely acclaimed as the father of modern African literature, and generally believed to be one of the 100 most important writers of the 20th and 21st centuries. A must read! ____________________ Dr. Rose Ure Mezu was born in Nigeria and studied in Port-Harcourt, (Nigeria), Abidjan, (Côte d'Ivoire ), Buffalo (New York) and Paris (France) where she graduated with a Diplôme d'Études from the Sorbonne.
