Index Of Subjects, Proverbs, And Themes In The Writings Of Wole Soyinka by Greta M. Coger

This index will facilitate in-depth research into 20 of Soyinka's major works including plays, novels, and poetry. . . . An important tool for anyone engaged in the study of Soyinka's writings. Choice

This is the first comprehensive index of subjects, themes, and proverbs in the works of Wole Soyinka, the Nigerian writer who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1986. Designed to enhance comprehension of Soyinka's art, the index shows what ideas and objects are present in the author's works, how frequency of their usage can be used as one indicator of importance, and the relationships of themes, subjects, and proverbs among the characters in his works. Coverage includes all of Soyinka's major books: twelve plays, two autobiographies, two novels, three volumes of poetry, and one philosophical exploration of myth and literature. The compiler's critical introduction places the works in context and offers a valuable interpretation based on the materials contained in the Index.
