Opuliche is an autobiographical fiction which details the travails of the heroine as she struggles on to succeed in life. The greatest of these challenges was being born a female in a male-dominated African setting of the 30s.
Written in simple diction, which underscores the heroine's earlier near simplistic belief in the efficacy of colonial education and understanding of life's travails, the narrative effectively re-creates the native's grasps, turmoil and surmounting of the problems associated with colonialism. From these beginnings, current issues of post colonialism had their seeding and birth. Thus a reading of Opuliche will help unravel some of the origins of current gender relations in (Nigeria) Africa.
