by Gustave Akakpo

 


Africa is a woman preyed upon.  The air is thick with the hatred and incomprehension of its sons returning home after having been far too long away, finding that the return can be worse than the exile.

 

Written by a native of Togo now living in Paris, this is an allegorical criticism of western expansion across the world, and its increasingly dire consequences.  It is a piece reminiscent of Greek tragedy, full of lyricism and meaningful exposition - an examination of tragedy linked to the dreadful experiences of the Third World.

 

May the Healing, the Catharsis, begin anew…
