"Amadis sorgliga saga De stora dammarna är ett angrepp på dogmatiska patriarkala system, på religioners maktanspråk, på den historiska kausalitetens och det historiska skrivandets lättfärdighet." ur Raoul J. Granqvists förord De stora dammarna av Elechi Amadi utspelar sig i en fiktiv afrikansk bykultur opåverkad och ohotad av européer. Två byar, Chiolu och Aliakoro, befinner sig i fejd med varandra över rättigheterna till fisket i dammen Wagaba. I takt med att konflikten eskalerar synliggörs grymma och brutala ideologier på vilka även detta idealiserade ikwerre-samhälle är byggt. Vid romanens horisont anas sedan den faktiska historien; hänsynslös kolonialism och blodigt inbördeskrig. De stora dammarna [1969] är en västafrikansk klassiker om kriget, såväl det påtagligt synliga som det ekonomiska. I översättning av Torsten Hansson och med ett nyskrivet förord av litteraturvetaren Raoul J. Granqvist. ELECHI AMADI, född i Aluu 1934, är en nigeriansk romanförfattare och dramatiker. Amadi deltog i det nigerianska inbördeskriget, en erfarenhet som blir till ett viktigt tema i författarskapet, vid sidan av problematiken som handlar om det lokala traditionellas möjligheter kontra inflytandet från väst. Särskilt omtalad är Amadis trilogi med de fristående romanerna Konkubinen [The Concubine, 1966], De stora dammarna [The Great Ponds, 1969] och Slaven [The Slave, 1978]. [Publit]
