Reading Chinua Achebe: Language and Ideology in Fiction (Studies in African Literature)
Analysis of the writings of Chinua Achebe aimed at students of literature.
Simon Gikandi has set out to reveal '...the very nature of Achebe's] creativity, its prodigious complexity and richness...its paradoxes and ambiguities. This is scholarship of real stature and supersedes all other studies of Achebe's writing. It comes at a good time. Achebe's literary reputation is equal to that of any living author and a substantial critical canon has been established. - G.D. Killam, Professor of English, University of Guelph
