Wole Soyinka's Poetry as Bilingual's Creativity.
Osakwe, Mabel I.
World Englishes, v18 n1 p63-77 Mar 1999
Examines features that make Wole Soyinka's poems bilingual and bicultural. Four linguistic strategies revealing features used in Yoruba poetic discourse are identified across Soyinka's four anthologies: literal translation, creative translation, transference, and stylistic translation. The study reveals that the native language and literary traditions of Wole Soyinka influence the style of some of his poems cutting across the four anthologies. (SMN)
