The burden of this review essay is to explore the enabling features, contents and strengths of a critical tour de force, The Postcolonial Lamp: Essays in Honour of Dan Izevbaye, edited by the duo of Aderemi Raji–Oyelade and Oyeniyi Okunoye. The exploration is anchored in the basic tenet of reader-response theory, and the methodology is analytical, critical, exploratory, and descriptive. The investigation reveals that the essays in the book reflect the research focus of Professor Daniel Sunday Izevbaye, the scholar-critic being celebrated through the book. It is established that the essays are well selected, critically discussed, and robustly illustrated. It is concluded that the book is indeed a welcome addition to the relatively undersubscribed discourses on postcolonial African literatures.
