Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Since the early 1960s, Nigerian dramatist, poet, novelist, and critic Soyinka has been acclaimed as a major African writer. His autobigraphy Ake (1982) has increased his worldwide reputation to make him an obvious Nobel candidate. This bibliography lists, in chronological order, his own writings248 items from some university journalism of 1953 to his most recent play of 1984and more than 1500 secondary sources from 1956 to early 1985. The absence of annotation, however, limits the work's utility; some guidance through the thicket of writings is much needed. An introductory overview would also have been invaluable; the discursive preface is disappointingly thin. For reference and black literature collections. Peter Sabor, English Dept., Queen's Univ., Kingston, Ont.
