The parable of the blind men and an elephant originated in the ancient Indian subcontinent, from where it has been widely diffused. However the meaning of the popular proverb differs in other countries. It is a story of a group of blind men, who have never come across an elephant before and who learn and conceptualize what the elephant is like by touching it. Each blind man feels a different part of the elephant's body, but only one part, such as the side or the tusk.

This book is a collection of essays, which examine the lives, and works of a number .

This book is a collection of essays, which examine the lives, and works of a number of outstanding contemporary writers of African origin. The biographical subjects include Chinua Achebe, Dennis Brutus, Cyprian Ekwensi, Ngugi wa Thiong'o, 1986 Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka, Amos Tutuola, Janheinz Jahn and Sartjee Baartman.

The essays approach the African literary subjects from a variety of biographical perspectives. The first two deal with biographical criticism itself, offering examples of how it can be abused as a method of literary evaluation. The next three are concerned with demonstrating why the themes and techniques employed by Dennis Brutus, Wole Soyinka and Ngugi wa Thiong'o have changed significantly over time. The remaining essays are primarily biographical, setting down a reliable factual record of important moments in the careers of two Nigerian writers, a German scholar and a South African performer. Each essay has its own strategy, but they all work toward a common goal: illumination of a reciprocity between literature and life.
