African Portraits

Title African Portraits

"African Portraits" is a collection of stories and vignettes set in various regions of Africa, including Egypt, Kenya, and South Africa. The stories are loosely connected by the theme of colonialism and its effects on both the colonizers and the colonized. Through vivid descriptions of the landscapes, people, and cultures of Africa, Cloete offers a glimpse into the complexities of colonial life, and the tensions and contradictions that existed between the Europeans and Africans. The stories explore themes such as race, class, identity, and the impact of colonialism on individuals and societies. Stuart Cloete was a white South African writer who held racist beliefs, and some of his writings have been criticized for promoting colonialist and imperialist views.
