Ama Ata Aidoo (äm´ä ätä´ä ī´dōō) (Christina Ama Ata Aidoo), –, Ghanaian author, poet, and playwright, grad. Univ. of Ghana (B.A., ). Combining traditional African storytelling with Western genres, she writes of the contemporary roles of African women and the negative impact of Western influences on African culture. In this essay, I contemplate the present global, postcolonial occasion in view of Ama Ata Aidoo's Anowa, and I do so in order to rethink the question of belonging, representation, and silence that the haunting politics of the specter provokes. .
