The Man Died: Prison Notes of Wole Soyinka

During the Nigerian Civil War (1967-1970), the Nobel Prize-winning African writer, Wole Soyinka, was arrested and incarcerated for twenty-two months, most of it spent in solitary confinement in a cell, 4ft by 8ft. His offence: assisting the Biafran secessionists.
The Man Died, now regarded as a classic of prison literature, is a product of this experience. What comes through in the compelling narrative is the author’s uncompromising, principled stand on the universality and indivisibility of freedom and human rights.
