ABSTRACT

The continued domination of English language in the African world especially in the literary field has caused various doubts on what could be termed the African literature. Therefore, purpose of this research is to identify, how African writers have used language and style of writing to depict their continental identity in works of art. Researches have established that the some parts of Africa had their literatures (either oral and or written) long before some parts of Europe. Therefore, the advent of English language is not the genesis of literature in Africa. The research, having examined this paramount discourse from Wole Soyinka’ s

Death and the King’s Horseman, has concluded that language use and style are still significant beacons of African Literature.
