Approaches To Teaching The Works Of Ng G Wa Thiong O

by Oliver Lovesey, Approaches To Teaching The Works Of Ng G Wa Thiong O Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Approaches To Teaching The Works Of Ng G Wa Thiong O books, Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o is one of the most important and celebrated authors of postindependence Africa as well as a groundbreaking postcolonial theorist. His work, written first in English, then in Gĩkũyũ, engages with the transformations of his native Kenya after what is often termed the Mau Mau rebellion. It also gives voice to the struggles of all Africans against economic injustice and political oppression. His writing and activism continue despite imprisonment, the threat of assassination, and exile. Part 1 of this volume, "Materials," provides resources and background for the teaching of Ngũgĩ's novels, plays, memoirs, and criticism. The essays of part 2, "Approaches," consider the influence of Frantz Fanon, Karl Marx, and Joseph Conrad on Ngũgĩ; the role of women in and influence of feminism on his fiction; his interpretation and political use of African history; his experimentation with orality and allegory in narrative; and the different challenges of teaching Ngũgĩ in classrooms in the United States, Europe, and Africa."

Gynocentric Contours Of The Male Imagination A Study Of The Novels Of Chinua Achebe And Ng G Wa Thiong O

by Dr. Amna Shamim, Gynocentric Contours Of The Male Imagination A Study Of The Novels Of Chinua Achebe And Ng G Wa Thiong O Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Gynocentric Contours Of The Male Imagination A Study Of The Novels Of Chinua Achebe And Ng G Wa Thiong O books, The focus of this book is upon the changing perception of women in African society and their portrayal over different periods in the novels of Chinua Achebe and Ngugi wa Thiong’o; the writers who intriguingly wrote on the constant changing role of African women in Igbo and Gikuyu clans. The book dicusses the image of African women entrapped in double jeopardy in both traditional and modern Africa. There has been a remarkable transformation in the representation of women from the early novels to the later novels of both the writers that has been studied in this book from close quarters. The approach and technique of the novelists in projecting their female characters has also been analyzed. The novels of both the writers marked a sea change in the thinking and perception of Westerners with reference to Africa and its people. This work is devoted to the exploration of the image of women in the East and West African societies through the selected novels of Chinua Achebe and Ngugi wa Thiong’o.

The Politics Of M Othering

by Obioma Nnaemeka, The Politics Of M Othering Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Politics Of M Othering books, This collection is a study of African literature framed by the central, and multi-faceted, idea of 'mother' - motherland, mothertongue, motherwit, motherhood, mothering - looking at the paradoxical location of (m)other as both central and marginal. Whilst the volume stands as a sustained feminist analysis, it engages feminist theory itself by showing how issues in feminism are, in African literature, recast in different and complex ways.

Penpoints Gunpoints And Dreams

by Ngugi wa Thiong'o, Penpoints Gunpoints And Dreams Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Penpoints Gunpoints And Dreams books, Penpoints, Gunpoints, and Dreams explores the relationship between art and political power in society, taking as its starting point the experience of writers in contemporary Africa, where they are often seen as the enemy of the postcolonial state. This study, in turn, raises the wider issues of the relationship between the state of art and the art of the state, particularly in their struggle for the control of performance space in territorial, temporal, social, and even psychic contexts. Kenyan writer, Ngugi wa Thiong'o, calls for the alliance of art and people power, freedom and dignity against the encroachments of modern states. Art, he argues, needs to be active, engaged, insistent on being what it has always been, the embodiment of dreams for a truly human world.
