Devaluation Aesthetics in Soyinka's Requiem for a Futurologist

Adeoti, Gbemisola Remi (1997)


Quite a great deal, once is aware, has been written on Wole Soyinka's satiric corpus. Many more would still have to be written because like other great writings. Soyinka's works are such that rarely court exhaustive and decisive interpretations. It is observable from many available studies dealing with Soyinka's satire that not much attention has been given to the formal and constitutive elements of this literary mode. They are either ignored or accorded little significance.
