Abstract:Syl Cheney-Coker (born 1945) is generally regarded as Sierra Leone's leading poet and novelist. This collection of essays provides a comprehensive analysis of his works. The first part contains interviews with Syl Cheney-Coker, conducted by Esa Sariola, Niyi Osundare, Stewart Brown, S.J. Fowler, John Ziebell, and Ernest Cole. The essays in the second part, by Eustace Palmer, Tanure Ojaide, and Ernest Cole, analyse Cheney-Coker's poetry collections 'Concerto for an exile' (1973), 'The graveyard also has teeth' (1980), and 'The blood in the desert's eyes' (1990). The third part, on the novel 'The last harmattan of Alusine Dunbar' (1990), contains contributions by Brenda Cooper, Rosalind Shaw, Paolo Bertinetti, Abioseh Michael Porter, Philip Whyte, Patrick Bernard, and Eustace Palmer.
