Cheikh Hamidou Kane's L'aventure ambiguë ‘Samba Diallo is the victim of forces beyond his control'. Discuss this view of the protagonist of L'aventure ambiguë. In L'aventure ambiguë, the colonization of Senegal by the French have led to different and often conflicting views from different characters, clashes of different cultures and practices of religion, as well as the education that was provided by the Diallobé and from the new foreign schools. These few examples are useful in explaining the term ‘victim', i.e. what he is a victim of, and later on how these forces may have influenced him over the course of the story. To simplify this essay, my essay will be focused mainly on ‘Westernisation' and 'Africanism', as I believe that all these factors come under those headings.
