Re: USA Africa Dialogue Series - Missing Abiola Irele

The teason I ask is to see how the judgement you already made on someobes work is actually borne out by an excerpt of the work that justifies your pronouncement. Judgement is already implied in your statement. All we ask for is a textual verification of that judgement.  Nothing unkind in that.  Did you actual bother to read his work?  Prove it textually rather than engage in generalities.

Ken just did that with films. Its what we critics engage in routinely.  As a translation artist Toyin asked me  specific questions on a work I presented.  I answered as specifically as I could.

How is my refusal to comment on my poetry and on Toyin's writings "escapist"? What you asked me to do isn't unpleasant to start with.

So, because someone did it, I should also do it?

Well, I don't want to, period!
