Abstract

Although the early works of the eminent Kenyan novelist and dramatist Ngug wa Thiong'o have received a great amount of international critical attention since the 1960s, little has been written about his portrayal of missionaries. The present article is intended as a step towards filling that lacuna in the literary and missionary history of East Africa. The evolution of Ngug's depiction of the proliferation of Christianity in Kenya is analysed against the evolving backdrop of his political radicalisation.
