The Strong Breed is one of the best known plays by Wole Soyinka.
It is a tragedy that ends with an individual sacrifice for the sake of the communal benefit.
“The strong breed” tells the story of Emen, who lives in a strange village and has to sacrifice his life in order to save the village. So it’s a tragedy that ends with an individual sacrifice for the sake of the communal benefit. Sunma, who is deeply in love with Eman, was very possessive about her love. The behavioral patterns of these two characters are extremely different. Here Eman has been portrayed as Jesus Christ because he is both a teacher and a healer and sacrifices his life to an insensitive village.
