Book Description

Elesin Oba, the Kings Horseman, has a single destiny. When the King dies, he must commit ritual suicide and lead his Kings favorite horse and dog through the passage to the world of the ancestors. A British colonial officer, Pilkings, intervenes.

""This play, by the winner of aNobel Prize for Literature, asks: ""On the authority of what gods"" the white aliens rupture a world. It puts exciting political theatre back on the agenda ... a masterpiece of 20th century drama.""-Guardian

""The action of the play is as inevitable and eloquent as in Antigone: a clash of values and cultures so fundamental that tragedy (ensues): a tragedy for each individual, each tribe.""-Daily Telegraph

""A transfixing work of modern world drama.""-Independent
