Literature overtime has always served the purpose of projecting the political realities of societies around the world. The African writer has been very much influenced by politics because the African intellectual is a part of the political elite.

understanding and interpreting aspects of society such as politics, religion, social conflict, class
struggle and human condition”. This assertion further suggests that li
