By Mary Stella Chika Okolo
African Literature as Political Philosophy seems to be specifically at Achebe's Anthills of the Savannah and Petals of Blood through Ngugi wa Thiong'o, yet situates those in the broader context of advancements in African literature over the last half-century, discussing writers from Ayi Kwei Armah to Wole Soyinka. M.S.C. Okolo presents a radical research of the authors' differing techniques and the way those emerge from the literature. She exhibits the roots of Achebe's reformism and Ngugi's insistence on revolution and the way those positions take form of their paintings. Okolo argues that those authors were profoundly stricken by the political state of affairs of Africa, yet have additionally helped to create a brand new African political philosophy.
