Summary
Writers don't give prescriptions, they give headaches. Uncompromising yet nonpartisan in his views on politics and writing, Chinua Achebe-author, editor, and literary critic-ceaselessly explores the collision of European and indigenous African cultures. In this classic lecture, the well-known ambassador of African literature delivers a thought-provoking introduction to the world-class writing that has come forth from Nigeria and other African countries during the latter half of the 20th century
