Armah’s Fiction: A Study in Decolonising Cultural Hegemony
Among African writers in English, Ayi Kwei Armah ranks with the major voices. Unlike his counterparts Achebe, Soyinka, Fanon, Senghor, Armah’s work is characterised by an ironic stance necessary for a great writer. His evocation of Ghananian society has a poignancy hardly noticed in postcolonial writing. This book offers a holistic account of the five novels—The Beautyful Ones are Not Yet Born, Fragments, Why are We so Blest?, Two Thousand Seasons, The Healers and meets the long felt need for a thorough critical appraisal of Armah’s work. Besides thematic discussion, the book explores many nuances of narration in Armah’s fiction.
