9780521428972: Chinua Achebe

This book provides a detailed examination of the writings of Chinua Achebe, Africa's best-known and most widely-read author, shortlisted for the 1987 Booker Prize. Dr Innes studies his writings, lectures and activities chronologically, in the context of Nigerian culture and politics and their interaction with Western cultures and powers. Her analysis goes beyond that of previously published studies, to examine Achebe's short stories, essays and poetry, and his most recent publications, Anthills of the Savannah (1987) and Hopes and Impediments (1988). Particular emphasis is placed on Achebe's departure from European literary models to create a new kind of fiction which seeks to challenge the preconceptions of African and Western audiences alike, and which is of considerable literary and political significance. This study will be invaluable to readers of Achebe and to students and teachers of African literature and politics, and modern fiction.

Recensione:

"Innes's study of Achebe...is useful not only for its comprehensiveness but also because it builds upon the well-laid foundation of earlier general introductions, and historical, linguistic, and anthropological studies of the Nigerian writer's novels." Choice

"It is Innes's unique achievement to present [Chinua Achebe] in a book which supersedes earlier studies by considering the ideologies and theoretical considerations which inform his intricate and complex narratives and by accounting for (not merely asserting the reasons for) his primary position in the African literary tradition. The writer, this book, and its author are exemplary choices to inaugurate this new series of African and Caribbean literary studies." Research in African Literatures

"C.L. Innes's book is a capable, appreciative analysis of Chinua Achebe's novels and a summary of his short stories, poetry, essays, lectures, and children's stories." World Literature Today

"Innes's Chinua Achebe (which contains an excellent bibliography) is a highly perceptive and original study of the distinguished African novelist. It is an auspicious start to the new series on African and Caribbean Literature sponsored by Cambridge University Press." Govind Narain Sharma, Ariel
