Abstract:This thesis will argue for hybridism in Wole Soyinka's dramatic construct of the tragic hero. In most of his so-called metaphysical plays, those that are played out within the Yoruba ritual and mythical worldview, Soyinka appropriates, reconstitutes and extend limits of the received Western canon's conception of the tragic hero. Soyinka achieves this literary landmark by creating tragic heroes via an eclectic mix of features derived from the Western hero archetypes like Dionysius, Christ as well as Ogun, the Yoruba god who occupies prominent place among the Yoruba pantheon of gods.
