    Reader comments on Edufa

    Subject: edufa is certainly an adaptation of alcestis
    Date: Oct 21, 2007
    Sender: Yunusa AbugiPrevious | Next

    A keen comparism of Alcestis and Ampoma in both plays reveals women who are passionate and romantic, simple and homely. But while Ampoma; despite afraid of being thought immodest is willing to use words to express herself as she thanked her husband for honouring her with words and a gift of flower she expressed an equal desire to reciprocate his gesture.
    women, you understand dont you,
    that with this, I mean to claim him mine and you are witnesses. pg 54. she also added
    Ampoma seems to be restricted from openly expressing her feelings for her husband by cultural inhibitions hence she goes further to give him a gift waist beads, bearing the breath of my tenderness.She also added:
    We spend most of our days preventing our hearts from beating out its greatness.
    The things we would rather encourage lie choking among the weeds of restrictions.
    Ampoma pg 53.
