Glimpses of the humorous in T.M. Aluko’s short stories
TM. Aluko’s short stories mark his entry into the literary world. Most of these narratives were published in the late nineteenth-forties However, a critical analysis and appreciation of Aluko's writing at this level has not been done. The present essay lays emphasis on satiric humour in these tales about Yoruba city life which Aluko understands clearly as a product of European “civilisation” in Nigeria since the colonial era.
