Although the Ghanaian novelist Ayi Kwei Armah has won global recognition as one of Africas most articulate writers, Ode Ogede contends that critics have often misinterpreted the aesthetic and literary influences that shape Armahs artistic vision. Beginning with the premise that Armahs writing must be situated within its cultural, historical, and political contexts, Ogede challenges those scholarly assessments of Armah that regard him as a throwback to the major figures of European literature.

Instead, Ogede firmly links Armahs art with the complexities of African oral traditions and traces Armahs ability to create new literary forms through Armahs competent manipulation of his oral sources. Ogedes interdisciplinary blend of history, politics, and literary criticism breaks new ground in scholarly discourse on Africa.
