A courageous voice for justice, freedom, and human rights around the world, Wole Soyinka is the first African recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature for his novels, plays, poems, and essays. For his unhesitating resistance to political tyranny, he has been imprisoned, threatened with assassination, and forced to live in exile. He is the author of more than 20 plays and 10 volumes of poetry. In his hopeful new book, Soyinka analyzes Africa’s most pressing problems and finest assets, mapping a course toward renewal and peace.
