Wole Soyinka

 In an extraordinarily prolific and rich body of work including plays, novels, poems, and essays, Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka draws on both Yoruba and western culture to exquisitely weave a subtle understanding of the tragedy and comedy of the human condition. In this discussion, Professor Soyinka talks about the craft of writing, his work in theatre arts, human rights, and his political activism.
