This collection of critical readings of the literary representation of one of the most celebrated literary figures in Nigeria, nay Africa, re-establishes Akachi Adimora – Ezeigbo as a literary icon. Straddling her creative oeuvre in fiction , poetry and drama as well as her work on theory , the collection offers new insights of her fascinating creativity by reappraising , re – examining and re – critiquing a select fraction of the literary universe of this great narrator, poet, playwright, essayist, critic and social crusader ; a prolific writer who , even now , continues to create and recreate characters that inhabit a world that she brings into being by her prodigious imagination and dares us to believe and occupy that world.
This then is a tribute to Professor Theodora Akachi Adimora – Ezeigbo , a woman who has kept faith with her literary imagination and creativity .
