Adventure Of ROSE MARY
Man and woman were the two people in the beginning, ordered to subdue, dominate and multiply the world divine order. More
To most people especially the westernised, it’s a closed book that Africanism is mean to women. The westerners have gone farther in the fight for equality and the rights of woman, but not far enough to forget they were in it and it’s still on. Only few women in Africa and fewer round the world really know the meanness of their place.
Born in a village in one of the sub-Saharan African countries, Mary was one of the village girls bold to run away from the traditions and cultures of the tribes that devalue women to the city where western civilisation has given it advance-ment. She went through trying and herculean tasks where faith, courage, brilliance, commitment as her fortes led her to where she desires.
Unlike Mary, many women for the sake of material acquisition, most of the times out of ignorance or vile for what they need or desired as human beings, venture out with the pride of the greedy denigrating the worth of woman.
Is “Adventure Of ROSE MARY” an intriguingly passionate tale of a girl? Can one also say it’s a gothic story? In my opinion, it is a common but gripping blend of these genres. The story is fiction as names of most characters and inci-dences are the author’s imagination yet it’s an epic with re-occurrences that are characteristics in women’s life –realities and convincing.
It is a fascinating tale of rural life as lived by Africans far away from the cities in Africa engulfed in western civilisation that signifies the triumph of modernism over traditionalism. The main character, Mary, is exposed to the devaluing im-pact the rural way of life has on women. The tradition as practised in the village makes women abscond to the city where they find room to exert rights and equality with men. However, the right to freedom and equality goes on to give women the power and the mind to express vile, villainy and viciousness Mary and her cousin are carried away by the new phase of a friend who like many women run to the city for what they crave unaware of the fact that unlike her cousin she cannot indulge in the vile that are common with women.
Undoubtedly, Mrs. Man, a woman who comes across Mary in her travails to survive after she runs away a second time, this time from a practise common with women which she cannot abhor, the professor who marries her are characters who indicate that impiousness or goodwill is either way; from man or woman.
The story is impressively real. It’s what goes on day in day out in humanity; traditionalism or modernism. It’s highly recommended for both sexes to realise their equality as far existentialism is concerned. By the end of the book you realise that women are as equal as men. Distorted concepts are what make up the woes of man.
