“Bongcheon-Dong Ghost” by Horang (This one is seriously scary! Feel free to skip it if you think it might be too much for you.)
Thursday December 7: Final Exam, 2:45 p.m. In the classroom. For those of you writing the paper, the paper is due by this point as well, though you should feel free to email it to me at Kelly.Jennings@uafs.edu
In “Wedding at the Cross,” Ngugi, who himself comes from a colonized country (Kenya, colonized by the British, among others), writes about a young man and a young woman, Wariuki and Miriamu.
This is a post-modern as well as a post-colonial story. That is to say, it mixes both Western and Native American traditions, ancient and modern world views, as well as placing a tale of a colonized culture into a Post-colonial world.
