Tanure Ojaide

Life, Literature, and the Environment

edited by Enajite Eseoghene Ojaruega

With three highly successful international conferences and other salutary events in Tanure Ojaide’s honour over the last one and a half decades, researchers and scholars of African literature continue to reveal refreshingly new interpretations and insights to his poetry, fictional narratives, memoirs and critical essays. This particular collection is the second volume of essays, most of them selected from papers that were presented at the Third Tanure Ojaide International Conference held at the University of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria from 2 to 5 May 2018. The conference with the theme ‘Tanure Ojaide: Life, Literature and the Environment’ was an opportunity for intellectuals from within and outside the African continent to examine how the artist’s life, his bioregional and geographical environments influenced his writings.
