A sit-down with Kenyan writer Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o, the master of modern African Literature

Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o has frequently been regarded as a likely candidate for the Nobel Prize in Literature. He marked a new era in international literature with his works which expressed the discontent towards Kenyan society and injustice.

He has recently become the winner of the 6th Pak Kyongni Prize. Autumn is considered to be the perfect season for reading, and Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o paid a visit to Korea and met up with his Korean readers.

"The INNERview" sheds light on this renowned writer and his works which give a vivid depiction of Kenya's turbulent period.

Kenya was under British colonization for 60 years from 1895 to 1963. Through his works, Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o wanted to resist and exploit how Kenya underwent a chaotic and difficult period after independence.

He was imprisoned for writing novels which exploited neocolonialism in Kenya. In addition, he was forbidden from returning to his home country because of Kenya's totalitarian government, and has been living in exile for 30-something years.

His works show Kenya's colonization and independence, as well as oppression under a dictatorial government, and that's similar to Korea's modern and contemporary history. Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o is a well-known writer in Korea, as he delved into the world of Korean writer Kim Ji-ha and made the Korean democratization movement be known in Kenya.

We can rightfully say that Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o's works reflect Kenyan history. Let us now learn about his works and his life on "The INNERview."
