Okot p'Bitek in his Song of Lawino, Song of Ocol, Song of Prisoner, and Song of In all these poems, (except Song of Ocol to some extent), he makes use of. Abstract. This paper argues that education in Africa is victim of a colonial and colonising epistemology. Whatever appellation we give it, this epistemology takes. Song of Lawino and Song of Ocol are among the most successful African literary works. Song of Lawino is an African woman's lamentation over the cultural.
In a section titled, The Woman with whom I share My Husband , Lawino attacks the ways of the modern women who attempt to take on the ways of the white people. It is one of the most vitriolic sections in the book. Tina speaks English, she uses powder and lipstick and fears getting fat, and she is eating little food.
Song of Lawino (by Okot P’ Bitek)
In a poignant tirade, Lawino gathers all ugly images for Tina. Take for example,.
At the level of style, Song of Lawino blossoms at the use of native Acholi imagery and figurative language. The pictures drawn are tellingly from the African reality.
They create a very live impression that the African has interacted a great deal with his environment, in a manner that provides so much meaning to him. Writing in English to represent something African has been a major preoccupation of several African writers.

You are here: Song of Lawino. We are gonna newspaper ourselves in extinction, and the world is gonna be filled with Ugandans watching Coke ads and be no worse off.
She does a masterful job here, Lawino does, at exposing the hypocrisy of the European bait-and-switch of science and Christianity, using the one wherever the other doesn't work.
People who eat their Lord have nothing to teach us about reason and civilization, she says, and she's right, Europe. You can't have ith both ways.
Either you are better than them by your secular, civilizational lights, or you are better because your God is better, but you can't have both. From where do these words arise?
When you execrate the language of your birth, you're not as bad as the guy who walks out on his family, Ocol, but you are about the most pathetic, desperate-to-please thing on Earth. My husband wears the rosary and forbids me to wear the elephant tail. So on a tribal war level, he's right with God. But his claims for his new, exotic tribal godfriend pretty much preclude the argument that Europeans have shit to give Africans except in, like, a fetishistic way that sees quinine and the steam engine in the belief that God gave us his onlybegotten Son etc.Song of Lawino is an epic poem written by Ugandan poet Okot p' Bitek.
