The Hangman's Game: Karen King-Aribisala's "diary of creation"

Abstract : The structure of King Aribisala's multi-layered novel "The Hangman's Game" is complex: each narrative thread reverberates onto the other, creating an intricate network of (sometimes distorting) mirrors, suggesting an interconnectedness between past and present, reality and fiction, living and writing. This paper endeavours to explore this complex relationship and to demonstrate how the protean phenomenon of resurgence informs "The Hangman's Game".
