In the forest of Olodumare is a direct translation of D.O Fagunwa’s Igbo Olodumare. It is a dialectical exposé of the creative ingenuity, inspiration and use of language that characterize the writings of D.O Fagunwa and Wole Soyinka. Thus, this book reaches out to wider audience who find the Yoruba language difficult to read and understand as well as those who appreciate the use of rich language skills in Yoruba and English.
The book has what it takes to make its readers spell bound and be glued till the last page. It is a good companion for scholar of Comparative Literature, students of Yoruba Literature and general readers.
