Talk about The Interpreters


Madis
Good book. It had a lot of representation and symbols and stuff like that. Confused me a lot which is why I didn't enjoy it as much as other novels I have previously read.

This is to correct the "educated" reviewer who claimed Wole soyinka won the Nobel Prize for "The Interpreters". Soyinka wrote this novelvery very early in his carreer. According to the citation, Soyinkas's Nobel Prize was for his plays, of which "Death and the King's Horseman" is arguably one of the best plays of the 20th century. The "I lived in Africa for 10 years" reviewer never read the play in his/her 10 years in the country called Africa!

"The Interpreters" are a group of Nigerian intellectuals who have traveled outside their home country and who have returned to confront and understand the gods of their ancestors, the government of their country, and their own fates. The book reminded me of some of my favorite "anarchic" novels of the '50s and '60s-"Lucky Jim," "The End of the Road," even "The Crying of Lot 49." Sagoe, the journalist character, has a fascinating and scatalogical philosophy of life that parodies French existentialism very cleverly. The other characters include a frustrated engineer who becomes a great sculptor, a painter hard at work throughout the narrative on an epic canvas depicting all the main characters as versions of the gods of Yorubaland, and an eccentric white Englishwoman who has married an unsuitable Nigerian bureaucrat and befriended his more liberal mother. The book works on several levels--as farce, as cultural critique of colonialism, and as an exploration of the ongoing legacy of the Yoruba gods who animate and obsess the interpreters. Most importantly, it is an entertaining and unpredictable story full of sharp insights and surprises.
