Ben Okri

Edited by Fiona McCann

Devoted entirely to the fictional work of Ben Okri and in particular to The Famished Road (1991), this issue of Commonwealth Essays and Studies provides detailed analyses of the Booker prize-winning novel and discussion of its position within both a West African and a wider, postcolonial literary tradition. Covering a variety of issues, including Okri’s stylistic innovation, the novel’s complex, intriguing narrative style, the intersection of spiritual and material journeys, the significance of the family trope and the question of literary genealogies, these articles offer a substantial contribution to the growing body of critical work on Ben Okri.
