This study approaches Bessie Head not just as a successful African female novelist but as a sensitive philosopher and humanist whose works are dominated by recognizable philosophical ideas about the universal issues of love, religion, power, racism, injustice, sexual and financial exploitation, all treated in a radical way. Her deep commitment to people and an involvement in questions of poverty and exploitation are motifs which run through her work. This book shows Head as she reworks her usual themes, taking us through a stylistic landscape that bypasses the typical Apartheid landmarks and arrives whole, independent, paradoxical, sublime, yet ordinary.
