Emergence of new African woman in Buchi Emecheta’s Kehinde
V Anitha, Dr. R Bharti
An image of the vagrant world is found in Kehinde chosen from the third period of Buchi Emecheta’s composition. Postcolonial obsession caused by distance and disengagement is seen alleviated by the amalgamation of these groups. Kehinde represents the encounters of the African female diaspora and frame a microcosm of the diasporic groups. Kehinde is simply the record of the enlivening of a First world outsider. The novel manages the slow change of an African female and with her change into a completely created lady, acquiring an extraordinary personality.
