ADICHIE'S AMERICANAH : AN INTENTIONAL DISTORTION OF THE AFRICAN IDEALS TO STIR THE AFRICANNESS IN AFRICANS

This essay attempts a moral criticism of Americanah and provides a rationale for its offensiveness. With the provocative ending given to the novel, this essay maintains the stance that Adichie engages in an intentional distortion of what is considered rational and moral in Africa not to leave the African reader offended, but to stir an anger in him and give him a deeper conviction of the morality he truly stands for.
