WAEC Literature in English Tutor

Literature in English mirrors life in its entirety, hence, it is literature that helps us view the society as it truly is, nay objectively. More so, Literature helps us to experience and gain exposure into culture from other climes near or far; thus, through the reading of literary texts we take a peek into events and activities that occur in other geographical milieus.

Most writers, apparently, are products of one culture or the other and through their idiosyncrasies( style ) they evince to their readers aesthetics of their homeland nay cultures to mention but a few; this is one of the myriads of things we stand to gain as we study literature. Anti- colonial writers otherwise known as Afrocentrics like Achebe, Soyinka, C. Okigbo, Clarke, Armah, Parton, P. Abraham, Ngugi and so forth have used their seminal works to evince the aesthetics in African culture... also themes in anti- colonialism and post- colonial influences on the so- called nationalists are not left out.

The following are works that respectively and judiciously corroborate the aforementioned: Things Fall Apart, Death and the King Horseman, The Labyrinth, A Reed in the Tide, The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born, Cry Beloved Country, A Wreath for Udomo, Devil's on the Cross/ Stanley Meets Mutesa, etc. Having said all these, we need to take Literature as a liberating experimentation and not just an academic subject or experience leaving us utterly indignant.

I, therefore, urge us to study literature passionately so that it becomes leisure and I promise that its benefits certainly will outweigh its impediment ranging from exposure gained into people stories, mellifluosnesses of language, dialectics, vocabulary and grammatical intricacies unravelled, punctuations, figures of speech, Creative Writing techniques are few of varieties we stand to gain.

It still baffles me though, that many students in contemporary times become victims of Literature  in their exams rather than victors; it is rather unfortunate, since it is something that syncretically affords us glamour and cognition. I believe we can scale through the huddles , if you agree to take up your pen and pad and follow me as I have the key to unlock every literary doors. Can't wait to see you join me in this invaluable adventure....
