Abstract:

Ngugi wa Thiong'o's politics of language has been controversially received by his critics, who tend to either overemphasize his revolutionary trajectory as an African writer or devalue his efforts to produce an African language-based literature. Through a historical and cultural analysis, the present work offers an alternative view of Ngugi treatment of the language question as a problematic, yet necessary, attempt to interrogate and alter his cultural alignments with European colonialism. A politica linguistica do escritor queniano Ngugi wa Thiong'o's e recebida de forma controversa pelos criticos, que tendem a superenfatizar sua trajetoria revolucionaria como escritor ou a depreciar seus esforcos para produzir obras literarias em linguasafricanas. A partir de uma analise historica e cultural, este ensaio oferece uma visao alternativa do tratamento dado por Ngugi a questao linguistica como uma tentativa problematica, porem necessaria, de interrogar e alterar suas aliancas culturais com o colonialismo europeu.
