The Last Good Country
The article presents information on the author's views on the depiction of Africa in the book "Under Kilimanjaro," written by Ernest Hemingway, the noted English language novelist. The book includes the brutal realities of contact between town and country, tribal and colonial, black and white, truth and lies. Africa is a mix of fantasy and desire, hard and beautiful truths held together by the narrator. Every new day in Africa holds the promise of something about to happen. The journey of this book is the soul's journey forward and back through time. The constraints of culture are striped away through comedy and farce.
