PSYCHOREALISM IN GHANA MUST GO BY TAIYE SALASI, WE NEED NEW NAMES BY NOVIOLET BULUWEN AND THE REACTIVE BY MASANDE NTSTANGE
Contemporary African literature has witnessed a rich tapestry of diverse voices, genres, and narrative styles that capture the complexities of the continent’s experiences. Among these voices, Taiye Selasi, NoViolet Bulawayo, and Masande Ntshanga stand out for their unique contributions to the literary landscape. This study focuses on three novels: “Ghana Must Go” by Taiye Selasi, “We Need New Names” by NoViolet Bulawayo, and “The Reactive” by Masande Ntshanga. The novels not only explore individual and collective identities but also employ a narrative style that intersects with the concept of Psychorealism, offering a lens through which to examine the characters’ psychological landscapes.
Contemporary African literature has become a vibrant and diverse space that reflects the complex realities of the continent, exploring themes of identity, migration, and societal transformations. Within this literary landscape, authors Taiye Selasi, NoViolet Bulawayo, and Masande Ntshanga have emerged as distinct voices, offering unique perspectives on African experiences. This study delves into the exploration of Psychorealism—a term coined by Nigerian writer Ben Okri—in three notable novels: “Ghana Must Go” by Taiye Selasi, “We Need New Names” by NoViolet Bulawayo, and “The Reactive” by Masande Ntshanga.
Psychorealism is a narrative technique that intertwines psychological depth with realistic storytelling, aiming to delve into the intricate realms of characters’ thoughts, emotions, and motivations. The term implies a literary approach that transcends mere realism, delving into the psychological landscapes of characters and bringing forth a deeper understanding of their experiences. As Okri suggests, Psychorealism seeks to capture the essence of the human psyche, allowing readers to engage with characters on a profound emotional and psychological level.
The choice of these novels stems from their thematic richness and the authors’ adept use of Psychorealism in portraying the complexities of the human condition. “Ghana Must Go,” “We Need New Names,” and “The Reactive” traverse different geographical and cultural terrains—Ghana, Zimbabwe, and South Africa, respectively—providing a diverse lens through which to examine the multifaceted nature of Psychorealism in African literature. By unraveling the psychological depths of characters in these narratives, this study aims to contribute to the broader understanding of the intersection between psychology and realism in contemporary African storytelling.
As postcolonial African literature continues to evolve, the exploration of new literary techniques and narrative strategies becomes imperative. The concept of Psychorealism, a term coined by the Nigerian writer Ben Okri, involves the fusion of psychological depth with realistic storytelling. This study seeks to investigate how Psychorealism manifests in the selected novels and how it contributes to the portrayal of characters, cultural complexities, and the broader socio-political contexts of Ghana, Zimbabwe, and South Africa.
