This book directs attention to Bessie Head's literary preoccupations. It reviews the context in which she wrote in relation to her ideas about the creative imagination, the art of fiction, and the situation of the writer in modern Africa. It notes, in particular, her views on reading as a source of inspiration for the writer and her uses of local oral tradition and the blending of heterogeneous materials that she valued in her fiction. The discussion also includes references to Head's encoding of meaning, her texturing of language, and the techniques by which she develops complexity and concision in her writing. The works examined include "The Cardinals", "When Rain Clouds Gather", "Maru", "A Question of Power", "The Collector of Treasures", and "A Bewitched Crossroad".
