    1. All crimes must be investigated, peace time or war time.Three days later, unable to accept any longer the dispensation of prison walls I began the letter to my political colleagues. I use this term in preference to the other, 'political comrades', to distinguish attitudes to situations of conflict, to distinguish those who on the one hand believe that prison—to quote this immediate situation—is some kind of hallowed ground in which an inmate must not only obey the laws of the administration [...]


    2. It is bizarre to think that a distinguished, world class literary pearl like Soyinka spent years clamped in gaol. But then again, so did other African literary giants like Kofi Awoonor (Ghana), Ngugi (Kenya), Jack Mapanje (Malawi) Mongani Wally Serote (SA) among others.At least Soyinka’s incarceration resulted in this extraordinary book, a work so brilliant that it necessarily invites all sorts of superlatives. The full range of Soyinka’s literary talent and nous is explored in this work, wi [...]


    3. A savage, stabbing inquiry, not into human nature proper, but into human nature viewed through the concave mirrors of solitary confinement and human evil, stretched and warped into horrible familiarity. Soyinka is hard to read, if you read him straight -- this book is most effective when you enter into its twisting, doubling corridors and let Soyinka transform your mind and introspection into a prison of your own. Like most great books, this one works on several levels: an indictment of politica [...]


    4. “The man dies in him who keeps quiet in the face of injustice.” That's my favorite quotation from this well documented piece which focuses on the prison experience of Wole Soyinka


    5. The thing that sticks in my mind most about this book is this: In solitary confinement, living with the knowledge that he could be summarily executed at any moment, preserving his sanity by writing his thoughts down on toilet paper with homemade pens and ink, he devotes something like three typewritten pages to how much he hates oranges. This is totally peripheral to what is undoubtedly a great book, but that's what sticks in my mind. I definitely need to read more of his writing.


    6. "In the beginning there was Void. Nothing. And how does the mind grasp it? A waste? Desolation? Nothing is cheaply within grasp from what was. But as the fundamental nought, the positive, original nil? As the immeasurable drop into pre-though, pre-existence, pre-essence? But then, the mind that will conceive this must empty inwards from a lifetime's frame of accumulated references, must plunge from the physical platform into the primordial abyss. Within which alas, lie the creative energies whic [...]



    7. The Man Died is an intimidating book, and an excellent one. I was most impressed by the sensory detail Soyinka records. His prison experience - I suspect the same is true for other prisoners, but I don't know - leaves him with nothing but sensory details to record. So it's extremely powerful, especially when he is fasting. (He goes a little crazy.) I've only read Death and the King's Horseman and some articles, so I can't really compare with his other work, but this was easiyl the most impressiv [...]


    8. Wole Soyinka The man diedA rich experience of highly human level. You understand what kind of man is Soyinka through his struggling to maintain his humanity above all. The book is an essay, poetry, a diary of a political prisoner, a man aiming wholly to liberty and freedom His struggle is of very noble humanity and it s worth reviving it and living it through the book!



    9. All too real.A letter to CompatriotsThe author of this letter is a professor in Greece, George Mangakis, a present a captive of fascist dictators.* I quote some passages from his letter to reinforce certain very simple truths of a prisoner's precarious existence in isolation. It seems to me that testimonies such as this should become a kind of chain-letter hung permanently on the leaden conscience of the world. To defeat, to uproot in entirety any concepts of and pretension to a mitigating base [...]


    10. As a Nigerian I have observed that very few public figures write or talk about their experience or views on the Nigerian civil war (a.k.a Biafra war) and the tyranny of the military regime, a scar in the history of the nation and an indelible memory in the mind of some Nigerians.The Man Died; Prison Notes of Wole Soyinka I think is a personal and political entanglement of Soyinka in pursuit of what he considered to be a just course for the nation as an activist on the verge of the civil war, and [...]


    11. Soyinka's brilliant prison notes delve into the psychology of solitary confinement and the effects it has on the mind, body and soul. Soyinka's simple yearning for something to read is heartwarming coming from a fellow bookworm. Some of my favourite parts are the rather bizarre moments of insanity that will run through a mind confined to itself; a 3-page rant about his hatred of oranges, a probing into ideas about time and infinity, and others.This book is not just for those interested in the ev [...]


    12. Africa, continente martire dello sfruttamento coloniale prima e di ben due decolonizzazioni poi, decise a tavolino da un Occidente che l'ha geopoliticamente trafitta con faziose e artefatte linee geometriche criminalmente incuranti dei popoli, delle tradizioni millenarie, delle costumanze consolidate e di collettività sperimentate da secoli, partorendo, come un demiurgo malvagio, stragi, olocausti, torture, omicidi di massa, pulizie etniche e orribili soluzioni finali nate da un'improvvisata e [...]


    13. In introductory notes to Soyinka essay "Why Do I Fast?" inThe Art of the Personal Essay: An Anthology from the Classical Era to the Present, editor Phillip Lopate mentions this memoir. The essay, about S's experience fasting in protest of his imprisonment, was so good that I'm eager to read more by him.


    14. الرواية بطلها الكاتب نفسه, وول سوينكا. السجين الذي لطالما كان يحلم بالحرية وتحرير وطنه من المستعمر والجهل. حيث يسرد بالرواية تفاصيل الاعتقال وما حدث أثناء فترة السجن من مشاكل وصراعات. العمل وإن كان شبيه بالمذكرات الشخصية لكنه بصورة أعمق وأوسع لا يخص سوينكا وحده. بل أفريقيا ك [...]




    15. A magnificent memoir, stunning and intellectual. What one would expect from one of the greatest ever writers in the world. Yet with dollops of humour, somehow
