Kenyan teacher, novelist, essayist, and playwright, whose works function as an important link between the pioneers of African writing and the younger generation of postcolonial writers. After imprisonment in 1978, Ngũgĩ abandoned using English as the primary language of his work in favor of Gikuyu, his native tongue.
The transition from colonialism to postcolonialism and the crisis of modernity has been a central issues in a great deal of Ngũgĩ's writings.
