A compendium of interviews with the late Ola Rotimi, who is perhaps Nigeria's foremost dramatist of the twentieth century. This edition brings together interviews which Rotimi has given over the past thirty years, some of which were published in occasional journals, and some of which have never previously been published. The interviewers are for the most part leading scholars in the fields of African literature and the dramatic arts: Bernth Lindfors, Onuora Ossie Enekwe, Margaret Floarin, Eldred Titus Green and Bassey Uwatt. The interviews present Rotimi's views on a range of subjects. As a whole, the collection reflects the development in his work and thought over time, and in light of the changing social and political and cultural context. Some subjects addressed are: African identity, academic influences and artistic ambition; the literary heritages of his tragedies, comedies and historical plays; socio-political context and socio-political drama; the craft and form of drama; Nigerian drama, language and authenticity; theatre and teaching in Africa and North America; and the dramatist's commitment to Africa and the Third World.
