A Wreath For Udomo by Peter Abrahams’ analysis

 A Wreath For Udomo by Peter Abrahams Please come up with an interesting title,  MLA format, please. Here are the details for the essay: We often encounter celebrities who project one image in public life, only to learn that they are a completely different person in private. This is usually fine for someone whose public persona is merely a spectacle or performance, such as an athlete or an actor. But when that celebrity is meant to be a leader, we expect them to be morally sound in both their public and private dealings. A Wreath for Udomo by Peter Abrahams tells the story of Michael Udomo, a Panafrican revolutionary destined to lead his country to independence from colonial rule. We see Udomo as a public and private character. Does the novel allow us to separate his private and public selves? In other words, do his intimate, private affairs and relationships predict his political destiny? Please consider the larger political context of decolonization, including the insights of “The Wretched of the Earth” by Frantz Fanon about the psychology of “the native”(I included this text in the files section). Peter Abrahams invoked Fanon in many ways, for example, through his incorporation of violent revolutionary rhetoric. How does this aspect of the novel affect our reading of the more intimate scenes of the novel, which supposedly deal with “private life”? Feminists have long argued that “the personal is political”. Does the novel, A Wreath for Udomo, want us to read the personal relationships of Udomo as political?
