Villains, victims and victors: A character analysis of Amma Darko’s women
Keywords:character, Darko, politics, postcolonial feminism, women
Studies on Amma Darko‟s presentation of women suggest a retaliatory and sexist characterization because of the condescending circumstances her female characters find themselves. This critique, however, distorts the novelty she brings to the table with regards to the politics of female emancipation. Thus, drawing on postcolonial feminism, this paper explores the dynamism in character presentation in Darko’s first four novelsin order to show how she rethinks female subjectivities. Such a reading is important in the ways in which it provides a better appreciation of Darko’s vision through character and characterisation and postcolonial feminisms.
