African Romance is eloquent poetry in dialogue, the intriguing outcome of an estranged relationship. Tormented by a neglecting husband, Mallama uncharacteristically lashes out. Taunted by the profligate infidelity of her spouse and the outright ignorance of her kinsmen, she reproves the society lamenting her woes as it were.
The conversational style of the elegy, turns and twists to a denouement of a willful separation he to his philandering, she into the warm embrace of a cocooned admirer. The universal hopelessness of the romance is aptly captured by a dim-wit.
