Nigerian Literature, Nationalism and the Experience of the African Diaspora: an Appraisal of Ike Oguine’s A Squatter’s Tale
AbstractThe crisis generated by people.s dispersal to places outside their homeland has implications on both personal and national identities. This paper focuses on the literary trend in Nigeria reminiscent of works by African American and Caribbean writers who explored circumstances surrounding their compatriots in foreign countries from the 1950s to the present. The paper appraises Nigeria Diaspora literature using Ike Oguine.s A Squatter.s Tale as a significant locus to explore the crises of nationalism and the frustrations
which these exiles confront in their new homes.
