It reviews the context in which she wrote in relation to her ideas about the creative imagination, the art of fiction, and the situation of the writer in modern Africa. It notes, in particular, her views on reading as a source of inspiration for the writer and her uses of local oral tradition and the blending of heterogeneous materials that she valued in her fiction. The discussion also includes references to Head's encoding of meaning, her texturing of language, and the techniques by which she develops complexity and concision in her writing. The works examined include "The Cardinals", "When Rain Clouds Gather", "Maru", "A Question of Power", "The Collector of Treasures", and "A Bewitched Crossroad".

Johnson, Joyce

Title:

Bessie Head: The Road of Peace of Mind: A Critical Appreciation

ISBN:

9780874130096

This book shows how Bessie Head used her engagement with sociopolitical issues to convey her ideas about the art of fiction and the operations of the creative imagination. It relates Head's literary practice to goals that she set for herself as a "beginning" writer, and, in view of the importance that she attached to reading as a stimulant of the imagination, pays special attention to the influence of her reading on her writing. Head's reading helped her both to define her role as a creative writer and to develop complex structures of meaning in her fiction. The book identifies correspondences between Head's works and those of predecessors in Western scribal tradition and shows how she relates other traditions to her local oral tradition. It thus examines Head's methods of combining thematic and imagistic elements, her delineation of character, her texturing of language, and other aspects of her literary practice. Joyce Johnson is an independent scholar.
