The Man Died- Prison Notes of Wole Soyinka

3,000.00 0.36

“During the Nigerian Civil War (1967-1970) Wole Soyinka was arrested and incarcerated for twenty-two months, most of it spent in solitary confinement in a cell, 4ft by 8ft. His offence: assisting the Biafran secessionists. The Man Died, now regarded as a classic of prison literature, is a product of this experience. What comes through in the compelling narrative is the author’s uncompromising, principled stand on the universality of freedom and human rights.” — Publisher’s website: https://bookcraft.smemarkethub.com/products/25234/the-man-died:-prison-notes-of-wole-soyinka-sale/
