Conversations With Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

by Daria Tunca, Conversations With Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Conversations With Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie books, Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (b. 1977) is undoubtedly one of the most widely acclaimed African writers of the twenty-first century. Best known for her insightful fiction, viral TED talks, and essays on feminism, she is also a notoriously outspoken intellectual. As she puts it in an interview with Lia Grainger, in her characteristically straightforward style: “I have things to say and I’ll say them.” Conversations with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is the first collection of interviews with the writer. Covering fifteen years of conversations, the interviews start with the publication of Adichie’s first novel, Purple Hibiscus (2003), and end in late 2018, by which time Adichie had become one of the most prominent figures on the international literary scene. As both scholars and passionate readers of the author’s work are bound to find out, the opinions shared by Adichie in interviews over the years coalesce into a fascinating portrait that presents both abiding features and gradual transformations. Reflecting the political and emotional scope of Adichie’s work, the conversations contained in this volume cover a wide range of topics, including colonialism, race, immigration, and feminism. Collectively, these interviews testify both to the author’s ardent wish to strive for a more just and equal world, and to her deep interest in exploring our common humanity. As Adichie says in her 2009 interview with Joshua Jelly-Schapiro: “When people call me a novelist, I say, well, yes. I really think of myself as a storyteller.” This book invites Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to tell her own literary story.

Language And The Construction Of Multiple Identities In The Nigerian Novel

by Aboh, Romanus, Language And The Construction Of Multiple Identities In The Nigerian Novel Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Language And The Construction Of Multiple Identities In The Nigerian Novel books, Language and the construction of multiple identities in the Nigerian novel examines the multifaceted relation between people and the various identities they construct for themselves and for others through the context-specific ways they use language. Specifically, this book pays attention to how forms of identities – ethnic, cultural, national and gender – are constructed through the use of language in select novels of Adichie, Atta and Betiang. Employing an interdisciplinary approach, this book draws analytical insights from critical discourse analysis, literary discourse analysis and socio-ethno-linguistic analysis. This approach enables the author to engage with the novels, to illuminate the link between the ways Nigerians use language and the identities they construct. Being a context-driven analysis, this book critically scrutinises literary language beyond stylistic borders by interrogating the micro and macro levels of language use, a core analytical paradigm frequently used by discourse analysts who engage in critical discourse analysis.

A Stylistic Analysis Of The Fiction Of Achebe And Ngugi

by Sarala Krishnamurthy, A Stylistic Analysis Of The Fiction Of Achebe And Ngugi Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Stylistic Analysis Of The Fiction Of Achebe And Ngugi books, This book provides a modern approach to the study of the language of two foremost novelists of the African continent: Chinua Achebe, a Nigerian and Ngugi wa Thiong'O, a Kenyan. Using stylistic techniques select novels of the two writers are analyzed giving fresh insights into their craft leading to a different interpretation of their texts. Further, the book also extends the field of stylistics itself by melding concepts from narratology and functional grammar in a unique and distinctive way. The language of fiction has proven to be a challenge to many critics because the novel form is unwieldy. The methodology that is used in this book focuses on both macro- and micro- linguistics structures thus creating a new mode to evaluate not just the fictional works of Achebe and Ngugi in particular, but the novel form in general. Therefore, this book should be of interest to scholars of Post colonial literature, African literature, stylistics and narratology. Further, students will get an exposure to concepts in stylistics and its methodology as well.

Approaches To The Analysis Of Literary Discourse

by Eija Ventola, Approaches To The Analysis Of Literary Discourse Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Approaches To The Analysis Of Literary Discourse books, Articles included in this compilation represent functional approaches to literary analysis. Most of these papers were presented at the Sixteenth International Systemics Congress held in Helsinki, Finland, in 1989. The aim of the congress was to establish dialogue between various functional approaches to the theoretical study of language, to educational linguistics, as well as to the study of literary language. The literary analysis papers included in this compilation range from discussions of literary pragmatics, to detailed systemic-functional analyses of literary texts. Papers included are: "Literary Genre and History: Questions from a Literary Pragmaticist for Socio-Semioticians" (Roger D. Sell); "Prose Dialogue and Discourse" (Karen Malcolm); "Dialogue and Discourse in a Nigerian English Discourse" (Femi Akindele); "Semantic Options in the Transitivity System: An Example of Textual Analysis" (Julia Lavid); "Variation in Narrative Structure: A Simple Text vs. an Innovative Work of Art" (Martina Bjorklund and Tuija Virtanen); "Phonological Meanings in Literary Prose Texts and their Translations" (Eija Ventola).
