Nigeria, a Russian website and Chinua Achebe (1930-2013)

I think it was on a Russian website a few years ago. I am not so sure. I knew I wanted to study Nigeria and I didn’t know where to start. I googled “Nigeria” and found a series of texts certainly reproduced with the permission of their authors (obviously).  I ended up reading a poem about Biafra and the Nigerian civil war (1967-1970). Two hours later, I was still in front of my screen. This is how I started reading Chinua Achebe’s poems and novels.
