Notes:
The "novel, as a more conscious artifact, is shaped in a more deliberate manner than poetry and revolutionary struggle in the novel is utilized with a well-defined intention. We will demonstrate these contentions by analysing the following novels: Bertene Juminer's Bozambo's Revenge, V. S. Naipaul's Guerrillas, and Alejo Carpentier's Explosion in a Cathedral." (author)
