by Festus Iyayi


Violence portrays a modern African society in a money economy wherein the possession of the capital is paramount in defining the individual as a member of the community. The characters in Violence come into two distinct categories — those who own the capital and those who don’t.
Festus Iyayi’s novel reflects the modern African society in its diverse forms: the urban society, morality, the problematic of development of newly independent African nations, and the attraction of towns and cities on country folks.
