Representations of “the Primitive” in Things Fall Apart and Death and King’s Horseman

Abstract Drawing on the acculturation theories of John Berry, this article discusses the representations of the “primitive” in texts by the postcolonial writers Chinua Achebe and Wole Soyinka, who critically examine the uncomprehending view of the West towards so-called ‘primitive’ cultures.

Gestützt auf John Berrys Akkulturationstheorien, diskutiert dieser Artikel die Darstellung des „Primitiven“ in den Texten der postkolonialen Autoren Chinua Achebe und Wole Soyinka, die sich kritisch mit der nicht-verstehenden Sicht des Westens auf sogenannte „primitive“ Kulturen auseinandersetzen.
