about

Metaphors and Climax explores the artistic forays of the late Ogonna Agu (Ph.D.), Nigerian writer, critic, actor, director, painter and Associate Professor of drama and theatre. In 19 exciting essays, this book captures the creative canvas of Agu as expressed in the genres of literary drama, performance and theatre criticism. Besides establishing the versatility of Agu as a virtuoso artist, the volume significantly interrogates the thematic preoccupations of his plays, their sociological values and the potentials and challenges of putting them on stage as performance texts. Issues such as the creative philosophy of Agu, the dramatic reflections of the Nigerian Civil War, the ideology of Biafra, the political economy of postcolonial Africa, love, gender and culture, and the ethical demands of peace and reconciliation demonstrate the broad canvas on which Agu's creative works are painted. The compendium is a good reference material for scholars, practitioners and students of African theatre, politics and culture.
