African (Oral) cultures, myths and superstitions in the formation of female identity
This article spins around the issue of woman. It is not a study that seeks to justify the direct link that lies there in between the different categories of African oral cultures, traditions, myths and superstitions; and their representation in contemporary African literature, but rather attempts to bring to light the factual causes these aforementioned categories yoke together to negatively impact the female subject’s self-betterment and awareness. The paper is based on female characterization and African imagination, but specifically revolves around the quest of woman’s cultural identity in the midst of harsh conventions and man’s total “inventiveness” to remain on top of the social ladder.
