Personal Analysis of Ama Ataa Aidoo's Anowa

- My favourite text is a play titled “Anowa” by Ama Ataa Aidoo which was published in year 1969. This book was first given to me by my father on my twelfth birthday.

In my post-colonial analysis, I saw that in a sense Anowa represents the moral fabric of traditional African society which is destroyed by the greed and the evil of slavery arising from the contact with European capitalism...   [tags: Colonization, Feminism]
