A Critical Study of Sheikh Hamidou Kanes

A Critical Study of Sheikh Hamidou Kanes

Abstract

‘Ambiguous Adventure’ is considered to be one of the greatest African novels. It is the story of Samba Diallo, his family and his people; the Diallobe.   He lived a short life but a rich one  nevertheless,   rich   in   experience,  thoughts  and   feelings,  a   life  also  full   of  conflicts.  These conflicts eventually led to the abrupt end of his life.   The book has generated various and  sometimes opposing viewpoints and literary studies, one example is (Suern, 2012 ); “The book manages to cover considerable ground in its 160 pages: the African diaspora; the collision between indigenous and colonial cultures; how religion and education can ensure imperialistic power; and finally, how individuals can become expendable experiments to their conquerors”. Another reader sees that the book “...addresses a critical contemporary issue—the collision of Islamic African values and Western culture.”
