Ananse based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
A MUST HAVE!!!! Ananse is a story of many tangled webs. It is not a simple retelling of the folk stories that were hand down to us from generation-to-generation. Worthy puts his own spin on the essence of this ancient African/African American symbol. Through his use of "ethnic" characterization and urban vernacular, many life lessons on love, marriage, family, religion, duty, perseverance, and camaraderie are made clear for every man and woman. Because of this piece, my views on the Madu society have forever been changed. Not only does Worthy breathe life into his characters: taking us on a journey from failure, despair, and hopelessness to pride, hope, and prosperity with his main characters (Tayron and Wilma Gabriel), but by the end of the tale he--leaves us wanting more! Ananse is beyond a must read; it is a must have!!
