The Healers

EPUB EBook by Ayi Kwei Armah

EBook Description

Apart from Things Fall Apart - EPUB The Healers - is probably one of the boldest attempts in African Literature to re-imagine the African past with a vividness and directness that speaks to contemporary African lives. The Healers EPUB EBook A book of impressive depth and characterisation, it depicts Ghanaian/Ashanti civilization at a moment of confrontation with Europeans encroaching on their independence, and its exploration of
slavery within African society, and as practiced by Europeans is one of the most vivid, relevant and effective in literature. The book has been critiqued for portraying women as mere dependents and 'helpmeets' of men, nevertheless, it remains one of the most powerful pieces of post-independence African literature.
