In the end, Soyinka spoke so many words and ended up saying nothing in response to the issues raised.

Such an evasive character is not worthy of even the readers digest author of the week award.

Reno keeps exposing himself as a thoughtless and hopelessly divisive character.

You read neither Achebe nor Soyinka's works in that Islamic bomb-making facility you called a school back then so how could you possibly compare?

Leave it for educated southerners to decide.

Thanks.

Once you read books from Achebe and Soyinka, you will definitely give it to Achebe.

some fellas are just educated illiterates e.g. Reno.

Soyinka has paid his dues, not many including those who are always using their ethnic bigotry to cast aspersions knew the efforts Prof Soyinka made to persuade the Govt back in the 60s to avert the bloody civil war.

It's high time folks are properly educated from the history books to give credit rightly where it belongs and stop exposing their high level of illiteracy, the fact that Soyinka never supported your favourite politician does not reduce or diminish his hard earned credentials and precious contributions to the project called' Nigeria'. Nigeria would have been a better place if we had more like him.

This is exactly why I said you are not in a position to judge Achebe & Soyinka.
Stick to bomb-making & blade sharpening.

Why do people fail to learn that literature is not about Prose alone.

The 3 genres of literature are Prose(Novel), Drama(Play), and Poetry.

While Soyinka ticks the box in all, Achebe ticks only the Prose box.

While Soyinka is an acclaimed Playwright and Poet, Achebe is an acclaimed Novelist.

Soyinka won the Nobel for the dual reason of Drama and Poetry, and this much reason was stated in his award justification, as the reason for all other awardees are stated.

"who in a wide cultural perspective and with poetic overtones fashions the drama of existence."


So why are people comparing an apple to an orange when the award for best fruit was given to an orange on the basis that for that year's consideration, the sweetest orange was the decider?
