Critique: Ways of Dying or The Price of Stones

This paper should be a thoughtful discussion of both what you think the author wants to
communicate about his society and the contemporary issues it portrays. What does the narrative reveal about the ways social identity (gender, class, ethnicity, religion), the legacies of colonialism (white privilege, urban growth, poverty, rural migration) and a “developing” country’s social issues structure the lives of the people portrayed. Briefly discuss the book’s national setting, that is, the recent history of the country. Please make an effort to explain the title.


The paper will be graded on:

1)Who,What, How, Where… evidence of familiarity with the entire text: plot or narrative,
People/characters, themes, issues, outcomes………….………….........................../25 pts.


2) critical discussion of contemporary South Africa or Uganda (depending on the book) Cite problems faced by its citizens as portrayed in the text. How do you “understand” the specific issues (jobless, homeless, v. low income, poor infrastructure) described in the book. Are the issues, customs portrayed particular to the country or more broadly descriptive of post-independence sub Saharan Africa?.............................../25pts.


3) your discussion of local ethnic & international influences on the people in the novel or memoir. Address whether the issues are specific to the place (post war), to the developing world (low incomes), to modernization, urbanization (drugs, gangs), globalization, etc.?................................................................................................……/25pts.
