themes of the blinkards by kobina sekyi
In "The Blinkards", it tells of the consequences of blindly mimicking the European culture. Mrs. [ Bor?fos?m (someone who exhibits too much European tendencies in his/her actions) eats only European foods, though we know that at several points in time she yearns for locally prepared food such as roasted plantain. She goes everywhere in a frock, boots with an umbrella and a lorgnette. Though she
speaks bad English, she does so with a forced English accent. As a wife to Mr. Bor?fos?m, she forces him to behave as an Europeanised man: smoking cigar, eschewing local foods and dresses. ]
