What Would Tutuola Do?

2018

Abstract

Amos Tutuola (1920–1997) was a self-taught writer who began his career by recording Yoruba folktales and rewriting them in Nigerian English. This essay reflects on Tutuola’s origins and legacy, the significance of stories in Nigerian modernism, and the value of oral history – with all its indeterminacies – as a means of negotiating the colonial past.
