Abstract

ABSTRACT:

This essay aims to isolate the treatment of dreams in Syl Cheney-Coker's fiction and to measure the success of his technique both in conveying an African sense of reality and in illuminating and amplifying the characters that inhabit his world. Four themes are taken up in this analysis: dreams as prophesies, dreams as a tool to reveal character and motivation, dreams as a representation of the continuity of time, and dreams as an expression of hope for the future.
