    Eldred Durosimi Jones is known internationally as being central to the establishment of the study of African writing in the new universities of Africa, Britain and North America. The annual African Literature Today of which he was founding editor in 1968, is a key marker of this growth. In addition, his book Othello's Countrymen introduced Africa into Shakespeare studies. Born in 1925, this account of his early years gives a vivid picture of growing up in Freetown in the latter days of British colonialism. He was an exceptional young man who was able to take advantage of the unusual style of this city-state. After studying at Oxford, Eldred Jones committed himself to his own country and it was appropriate that for over thirty years he was Principal and proVice-Chancellor of Fourah Bay College in Freetown, which had been set up in 1827 and was the first university college in Africa south of the Sahara. He lost his sight quite young and this book, like all his later written work, has been brought to the page by his wife Marjorie Jones. Her gift for story-telling about all the happenings of their lives as Sierra Leone was gripped by civil war has added to this highly individual book. Eldred Durosimi Jones is Emeritus Professor of English Language and Literature and former Principal and Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Fourah Bay College in Sierra Leone. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, recipient of the Royal Society of Arts Silver Medal, Honorary Fellow, Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and joint winner (with Marjorie Jones) of the African Studies Association of the UK Distinguished Africanist Award.
