Historicizing and fictionalizing Yoruba deities as narrative strategies in Chango, el gran putas by Zapata Olivella

This study of Changó by Zapata Olivella shows a worldview, an ideology that is neither strictly Western nor strictly rational. Thus my interest in this work rests on the author's creative ability to devote Changó to changing conventions. In attempting to valuate négritude, the author re-appropriates this literary movement, purges it of the Manichaeism it adopted from the dialectic of European ideologies of hierarchy of thoughts which assert that European is analytical and Black pre-logical. Zapata Olivella thereby establishes a more nuanced and complex set of relationships in négritude. Set in this ideological framework, Changó is a model of négritude discourse which harmoniously blends indigénisme and negrismo in a historiographic metafictional intertextuality where orality, writing, history, politics, and anthropology come together in defiance of linear writing. As such, Changó is a discourse with social visions which does not overlook the dynamism of black political ideologies but takes into consideration the recombinant qualities of black Atlantic's affirmative, sociopolitical cultures.
