Conversation with Pius Adesanmi on the first anniversary of his passage

Pius Adesanmi was a brilliant scholar and teacher whose critical perspectives and opinions on literary issues and current affairs resonate beyond the classroom walls. He was a regular speaker at public fora where ideas are proffered and new directions sought for important matters of public interest  I had always been impressed by his multilingual approach to discourse, an affinity I share with him but mine was certainly not on the same pedestal, considering the effusive and consistent scholarly output that earned Adesanmi recognition and international acclaim.
