Wole Soyinka won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1986. In this volume the five plays are all concerned with the spiritual and the social; with belief and ritual as integrating forces for social cohesion. Whether considering the corruption of urban life or the power of superstition, Soyinka's language and imagination transcend the plays' immediate social contexts.
