Frases Wole Soyinka

„A tiger doesn't proclaim his tigritude, he pounces“

— Wole Soyinka
Context: I said: "A tiger does not proclaim his tigritude, he pounces". In other words: a tiger does not stand in the forest and say: "I am a tiger". When you pass where the tiger has walked before, you see the skeleton of the duiker, you know that some tigritude has been emanated there. Janheinz Jahn (trans. Oliver Coburn and Ursula Lehrburger) A History of Neo-African Literature (London: Faber, 1968) pp. 265-6. Explaining, in Berlin in 1964, a criticism of the concept of négritude he had made at a conference in Kampala in 1962.


„The man dies in all who keep silent in the face of tyranny.“

— Wole Soyinka
The Man Died (New York: Harper & Row, 1972) p. 13.
