Fágúnwà’s Àdììtú Olódùmarè

Portrayal of Characters in Fágúnwà’s Àdììtú Olódùmarè (Published)

Literary writers always carefully and consciously depict their characters and places to reflect the roles assigned to those characters and places in their literary endeavour. Such characters and places are created to have the greatest effect on the plot of their literary work. Oftentimes, the names a writer assigns his fictional character and places are reflective of the characters’ behavioral traits and antecedents surrounding the history of such places. In the light of the above, we examine one of Fágúnwà’s classics, Àdììtú Olódùmarè and how the foremost writer who pioneered the Yorùbá language novel portrays his characters and places in the novel. His unique pattern of presenting his characters and place leaves a lasting impact on the mind of the readers. It also underscores the aesthetic quality of the novel as well as portrays Fágúnwà as an ingenious story-teller.

Keywords: Characters, Fágúnwà’s Àdììtú Olódùmarè, Portrayal
