B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Amos Tutuola (1920-1997) Nigerian writer, who gained world fame with his story THE PALM-WINE DRINKARD. "I was a palm-wine drinkard since I was a boy of ten years of age," Tutuola started the novel. "I had no other work more than to drink palm-wine in my life." The book was based on Yoruba folktales, but in his own country Tutuola was accused of falsifications and uncivilized language. The novel is a transcription in pidgin English prose of an oral tale of his own intervention. It recounted the mythological tale of a drunken man who follows his dead tapster into "Deads' Town", a world of magic, ghosts, demons, and supernatural beings. According to the Nigerian novelist Chinua Achebe, Tutuola's works can also be read as moral tales commenting Western consumerism: "What happens when a man immerses himself in pleasure to the exclusion of all work?" "But of course, there are two kinds of people on earth.

Amos Tutuola (1920-1997). Nigeria.
His second book, The Palm Wine Drinkard (1952), was saved from obscurity by Dylan Thomas, who wrote a good review of it six weeks after its publication. He described the book as a "brief, thronged, grisly and bewildering story, or series of stories, written in young English, by a West African, about the journey of an expert and devoted palm wine drinkard through a nightmare of indescribable adventures, all simply and carefully described in the spirit-bristling bush." Unsurprisingly, his work has not been greeted entirely favorably by educated Nigerians, who dislike his crude writing style and poor English. Similarly, many feel that the material promotes Western stereotypes of African backwardness. These concerns are not unfounded: Anthony West has called Tutuola's work "a glimpse of the very beginning of literature" and Selden Rodman has described him as "a true primitive." Tutuola himself is undaunted by such criticism, and many of his admirers describe his novels in much more sophisticated terms. Harold Collins, for example, claims that Tutuola is "West Africa's first classic in world literature." Despite the criticism his work has received for its grammatical shortcomings and untraditional plot development, Tutuola is undoubtedly a vibrant and evocative storyteller.

I count myself extremely fortunate for having been able to meet a number of African writers during the years (1978-85) that I taught at the University of Ife in Nigeria. Wole Soyinka, Kole Omotoso, and Akin Isola were on the faculty then. Femi Osofisan, Niyi Osundare, and Isidore Okpewho were nearby in Ibadan. Okot p'Bitek and David Rubadiri were visiting members of my department (Literature in English) during the first academic session I spent at Ife. People like Ola Rotimi, Chinua Achebe, Nuruddin Farah, and Ben Okri appeared from time to time. And there were budding writers among us, like Funso Aiyejina, Adebayo Williams, Kemi Ilori, Tess Onwueme. But one of the experiences I treasure most from those glorious daysa time of still resonant enCHANTmentsis sharing an office with Amos Tutuola, who joined Literature in English as a

Es ist die Geschichte einer langen Irrfahrt durch den Busch, d ie Reise eines schwarzen Candide durch den afrikanischen Urwald … Das Buch wird ergänzt durch ein schönes und einfaches Nachwort und ein Interview mit Amos Tutuola.« Christoph Meckel , DIE ZEIT Startseite

Amos Tutuola was born in the Nigerian city of Abeokuta in 1920. His parents were Christian cocoa farmers, of the Yoruba race. At the age of twelve he began to attend the Anglican Central School in his home town. His formal education lasted only five years, as he had to leave school when his father died in order to learn a profession. He went to Lagos to train as a blacksmith in 1939, and from 1942 to 1945 he practised his trade for the Royal Air Force in Nigeria. After this he worked as a messenger for the Department of Labour in Lagos, then as a storekeeper for Radio Nigeria in Ibadan. He was married and had six children.
