PROFESSOR D.S. IZEVBAYE:A FESTSCHRIFT

Professor Daniel Sunday Izevbaye, an outstanding Nigerian scholar and
literary critic ,is retiring from the University of Ibadan, his base for
well over three decades. Izevbaye is one of the foremost and original
thinkers of the nature and character of contemporary African literature
written in English, an accomplished teacher whose numerous essays in
African, Caribbean and American literatures have both the depth and
clarity of a true scholar-critic; metaphorically, D.S. Izevbaye is a
major pathfinder of contemporary critical practice in Africa and a
shining light whose propagation of critical excellence at Ibadan is as
influential as it is enviable.
