In Facebook I posted the following link in connection to the play you are reading with Ceci in class: Anowa
-Find quotations in the play to support this article. Focus on postcolonialism.
-In the very beginning of the story, Badua makes a comment about her daughter Anowa getting married and having kids, that was very alarming to me. “A woman like her should bear children, many children, so she can afford to have one or two die,” (72).
Could this cultural norm of losing your children to death and therefore causing parents to be very protective be a reason why Badua is so insistent on Anowa marrying someone she approves of?
Comment on the significance of marriage in the African context.
