Child Soldiers Revisited: Conscription and Choice in Ken Saro-Wiwa’s Sozaboy and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun
This essay is a part of our series, Literature and the World
Child soldier peripheralization in the Global South is explored though the narrative devices of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun and Ken Saro-Wiwa’s Sozaboy. I intend to reconnoiter the susceptibilities of children in combat with their resilience, agency, and critical accountability in war participation.
