    1 thought on “Feather Woman of the Jungle”

    1. I’ll risk this word because it should be used as a mere descriptor and shuck the suspicious glances ;; Amos Tutuola has a primitive book here with his Feather Woman of the Jungle. Others might pronounce that as ‘authentic’ but you’ll understand I prefer to avoid that condescension. Really all I mean to say is that Tutuola’s book here, and I almost must assume also his famous the palm-wine drinkard, comes from a stage of cultural-literary development which is simply no longer visible or [...]

    2. "Feather Woman of the Jungle" was my introduction to Amos Tutuola. Denver's best bookstore, sadly long-gone, was Equator Books, specializing in international literature. A small bookstore, but every title on their shelves a real gem, hand-selected by the women who owned the joint, DeDe and Joanne. I hadn't heard of Tutuola in college, graduate school or even the dynamic literary street scene at Faces Cafe at 17th and Franklin, run by that wild-eyed and wilder-haired Hawaiian of Cretan ancestry, [...]

    3. A much weaker follow-up to "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts" and "The Palm-Wine Drinkard". The verve and zaniness of those two novels are here dulled and wan. The premise is plain: a village elder tells stories of his adventures among the magic-wielding weirdos of the bush. Too bad that these stories are little more than bored-sounding rehashes of much of what Tutuola had already written. I'd give this one a pass and stick to his earlier novels.

    4. Абсурдна і дивна книжечка, яка своїми історіями про зловісних богинь лісу і мандри нагадує дитячі казки, але водночас достатньо іронічна для дорослих. Більшість негативних персонажів - жінки - відьми, чарівниці і королеви, які вплутують бідного мандрівника у халепи, але, пр [...]

    5. This is a collection of hero adventure tales similar to Sinbad and the Seven Seas. These 10 tales are related by the hero in his old age when he becomes chief to an ever-increasing number of villagers. The tales all involve the hero meeting, battling, and (usually) prevailing by cleverness and bravery and returning home with riches. I love Tutuola's books and the magical air of fairy tale his language evokes.

    6. A fascinating collage of myth and tall talesEvery now and then the world's attention is drawn to a strange figure in the world of arts, a figure who "doesn't belong", who has not paid the proper dues and hasn't struggled up through the usual channels. No, that person suddenly rockets into the artistic firmament, does things in a totally unconventional way, and is immediately pounced upon and torn apart by those who have studied, worked, and sweated, dreaming of brilliant success. I think of some [...]

    7. The collected misadventures in Feather Woman lack the depth of wide eyed creative genius of Tutuola's earlier work. We still have flashes of that depraved wonder - our protagonist selling his sense of shame so he can demand food from a village of famine - just not at the same breakneck speeds. In exchange for these inventive shortcomings the English is notably more polished, though still takes getting used to. Despite my reservations about the content, this is still Tutuola - a truly original li [...]

    8. Amos Tutuola is an amazing story teller, and it's always a joy to read his books. This one was great at times but unfortunately a bit lacking in certain aspects - some adventures weren't very exciting and the main character didn't need to do much to achieve his goals. Overall, a nice book but not excellent.

    9. Story collection by author who also wrote My Life In the Bush of Ghosts, about magic in the African bush. Scariest sections involve protagonist and his brother who are captured by the witch, turned into two-dimensional images, and flogged daily. Witch is half-bird, half-woman. Yay!

    10. This isn't Tutuola's best work but it retains his sense of wonder and characters full of derring-do and mischief.

    11. This is a pretty fun read. When I read it, it seemed a lot like variations on a theme, taking place over several nights. The grammar is interesting.

    12. I'm not rating this because I feel like I can't really get a grip on it. It's just so far from what I'm used to I didn't know what to think.
