SHORT NOTES ON MAJOR CHARACTERS’ ROLES AND SIGNIFICANCE
THE COKER FAMILY & EFUA
The family was made up mainly of Mrs Coker,Efua’s mother and her Aunt Mrs Moni Alli. Efua’s father was referred to but not heard from in the novel.
The picture we had is that of a totally dysfunctional family especially after Efua’s father died and the mother re-married. This we got to know from the following reported incidents
-Mrs Coker was fixated on looking good and making profit from her business than giving any affection to her daughter…………………….
…Nene saw her as an intelligent student because she belonged to the science class. But we later got to know Efua as a poet , letter-writer and singer. In her former school she was the Editor of the school’s Magazine . She also showed signs of being an excellent public-debater and her school cert result confirmed that Nene’s initial disposition towards her was right. Can we therefore deduce that the background of a student does not determine academic ability or performance in school? No, we may not. In fact it is doubtful if the author intended to say so. Generally speaking Efua’s case may be regarded as an exception to the rule in an opposite direction. The rule being that a student’s background or state of home affairs can affect performance in school negatively………
