    LIT A-LEVEL PAPER 3: The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born Ayi Kwei Armah 03:00:00
    The Beautyful Ones is so complicated novel. It explores individual isolation, unequal development, corruption and wasted potential in newly independent African nations against a backdrop of centuries of colonial rule. There is no clear resolution in novel, and the outlook of it can be easily perceived as miserable. Armah mocks with great forcefulness and misshapen language all that is rotten in the world of hypocritical people, lost opportunities and the enormous gap between the few with all the money and power hence the theme that is Armah’s main focus is corruption that existed in various form politically and socially through means either bribing or embezzling,
    LIT A-LEVEL PAPER 3: Bleak House -Charles Dickens 03:00:00
    Bleak House (1853) is one of five novels Dickens wrote in a decade at the peak of his creative power. It has sixty or so characters, two narrators (one ‘omniscient’ but another in the first person), multiple plotlines in every mode from murder mystery to romance, and settings ranging from the aristocratic Dedlock country seat to Tom-All-Alone’s slum tenement in London. Illegitimacy, disease, poverty, child-labour and crippling addiction to a fantasy of closure afflict a cast of people all caught up in the confused law case of Jarndyce and Jarndyce that is dragging on through the ancient Court of Chancery. Bleak House is a condition-of-England novel and the picture it shows is grim.

    God's Bits of Wood- Sembene Ousmane highlights the oppression faced by women in the colonial era. They were deprived of their ability to speak on matters including society as a whole. Sembène, however, raises women to a higher spectrum by considering them equally important.
