Matigari () by Ngugi wa Thiong'o Digitalized by RevSocialist for SocialistStories. Author: Revolution Created Date: 9/17/ AM. Matigari refuses to cooperate and is arrested when he tries to open the gate. He finds himself in a dark cell with other inmates, who were arrested for crimes they committed out of desperation, or for "spreading communism." Matigari shares his food with them, which reminds the drunk inmate of the last supper. Matigari by Ngugi wa Thiong'o is a fascinating story. Since from the very beginning, Matigari captures readers with foreshadowing, uses of similes, and many techniques that European writers use/5(8). [Matigari] is likewise equally a hagiography as it is a myth.” —Lewis Nkosi “Soon after Matigari’s publication, its hero was mistaken by the paranoid, dictatorial government of Kenya as a revolutionary agitator plotting to overthrow the government, which promptly issued a warrant for his arrest!

Obviously, Ngũgĩ means his book and protagonist to be inspirational. One reason for Matigari's elusiveness is that he is not meant to be a hero-figure people should wait for, but rather his spirit and attitude are what they themselves should embrace in taking up the anti-imperialist fight. Matigari protects Muriuki from a bully who tries to steal a shoelace from him, which he found rummaging through the garbage at the dump. Since then, Muriuki is a loyal companion of Matigari. He demonstrates his exceptional bravery when he rescues Matigari from prison, and later from the mental asylum. Matigari was written in Gikuyu and modelled on a traditional Kikuyu tale, but it could be set almost anywhere in Africa. It mixes oral tradition, Marxism and Christianity, concrete detail and symbolism, and humour, poetry and politics, in a simple but powerful story. ♥ Book Title: Matigari ♣ Name Author: Ngugi wa Thiong'o ∞ Launching: Info ISBN Link: ⊗ Detail ISBN code: ⊕ Number Pages: Total sheet ♮ News id: HLvpUTniGHkC Download File Start Reading ☯ Full Synopsis: ""Lyrical and hilarious in turn, Matigari is a memorable satire on the betrayal of human ideals and on the bitter experience of post.
