Synopsis

About the Book

This important book documents stimulating and engaging reflections and thoughts from international writers and commentators who collectively validate and establish Soyinka as more than deserving of the honour of the Oxford Professorship of Poetry. The co-editors Ivor Agyeman-Duah and Lucy Newlyn campaigned for the election of Soyinka and provide insightful analyses of the campaign while arguing for electoral reform. This is a must-read for anyone interested in the future of world literature and inclusiveness.
