1998By Su eddie AgemaDul Johnson s Shadows and Ashes is a collection of eight not so short stories that are woven around three broad subjects the Civil war, Rape, and a General Philosophy on life What strikes one though, is the strong and vivid descriptions in the novel that are evident of the author s romance with the still and moving camera There is another view to Johnson s descriptions, the psychological This can be said to be the mind descriptions Most of the characters in Shadows and Ashes are not shown simply as characters that appear to serve as a vehicle to meet the end of telling a story They are given human emotions and importantly, a strong intellect that allows think This is a quality that is shared by almost all the central characters in the book They are shown to think deeply before most of their actions or where they don t, after The deep thinking brings out aspects of the characters that are hitherto hidden and adds spice to the development of the character and indeed, the story This is most evident in the final story of the collection, The Shadow of Truth The story follows a debate that a minister, Dungchang has with himself on whether he should have sex with a twenty year old member of his congregation, Tanya, or not She is a true temptress as she admits in several instances She is made to look like Eve and Dungchang, Adam He thinks severally on the consequences of his actions and whether he would be justified to preach to others after his fornication He is strong willed and keeps the debate in his mind right u to the time when Tanya s clothes are off This might be the author s way of showing people that not all men think with the organ in their trousers alone It is true that Tanya finally succeeds in seducing him but what is of note, is his strong resistance even at the stage where the head is gone, and the head at the center takes over Usually, it is said that the forces of good and evil debate when we consider doing anything evil or bad What is also notable is the way that Tanya is used to act as the evil in the debate that goes on in Dungchang s head Many people call the good and noble thoughts, conscience and the other, human nature while others refer to the good as God and the negative thoughts or thoughts that lend credence to our desires, the Devil The use of Tanya here makes the whole pattern fresh and one has no problem believing the story or asking, how come this man s evil is farfluent The debate about righteousness and the act of sinning, human nature and denial is also a high point in this story The story has some sexual descriptions at a point but quickly becomes figurative making use of planes, and cars in order to cover what some might consider as lurid This again adds credit to Johnson s writings as he can be said to know when to cover the sheets on his characters moment This does not mean that he lacks the skills of describing the process, his quick notes on the foreplay is enough enough said on that already A lot of stories have been written about the Nigerian civil war with most of the notable ones coming from writers of Igbo origin who for one reason or another usually with a focus on showing the Biafran view It is in this regard that any differing view is seen as a breather In this collection, Johnson packages the first section of his collection, Haunting Shadows to the war He focuses on the physical, emotional and psychological effects that it has on men who volunteered for the Federal forces and their family The central character in Living with Shadows watches his two brothers go to war and finally gets word of their death He is deeply traumatized and makes a vow to kill Igbos He however changes his mind in the end when he meets and rubs minds with three Igbo friends of his, who have lost both families and are deformed for life He recognizes that the pain is mutual and that none of them had a hand in it That experience has been my healing he finally admits accepting his friends as brothers Ghosts of War tells the story of Dukven, a wayward man who goes to war so as to prove a point and come back a better man than his wayward self He promises his father wealth on his take off but comes back worse than he left His father is crestfallen Dukven marries a wife in the city who is good for nothing His father sends a delegation to the city to find out how he is faring They go to the city and bring unfavourable news The war has changed Dukven, and many others They have become worthless Dukven s father has had enough and becomes a shell of himself He sends for his son on his deathbed Meanwhile, Dukven has become a responsible person and is trying to come back and finally prove himself to a father he has deeply wronged He arrives too late Bond of Love is a very touching story that ends Johnson s section on the Civil War It comes after Love Pangs and concentrates on the love that a young man, Domsing grows for Ndubisi, a ten year old boy whose parents are butchered by his Domsing s people His love and bond with the boy increases as his twin brother goes to join the war Domsing is tempted to join too but eventually, his love for the boy makes him stay The boy begins to ask questions of his parents and siblings, so Domsing s family decides to tell him After a family meeting, Ndubisi is sent for and just before he enters, a telegram is sent stating that Domsing s brother has been killed There is a lot of tension in the room as Ndubisi enters They try to tell him to wait outside but Domsing stands his ground and divulges the blunt gory detail of the death of Ndubisi s real family An uncle stands up with a cutlass to kill the boy calling him the enemy Domsing disagrees and after some words leaves his Uncle ashamed The same Uncle, who previously blocked the door, sheepishly allows Domsing and Ndubisi to leave It is raining and the two of them make their way in the weather They do not know where they are going but are comforted in the knowledge that they have each other All the other stories come under a second section, Two stories on rape The Rape of Reginia Afang and Cinders of the Volcano roundup the masterpiece, not chronologically as shown in the table of contents of the book, but rather in the life of this review The first is about a lady whose encounters with rape make her vulnerable and unable to shield herself from approaches The second centers on a letter written by a teenage girl about how she has been violated by her father These two are very touching and paint the picture of helplessness that most ladies usually have to go through after the hideous crime of rape The shortcomings that some picky readers or critics might pick in Dul Johnson s collection might largely be taken from these stories The storyline in The Rape of Reginia Afang is laboured The evidence of the author trying to tell this story can be seen in his elongation of the story The twists that he tries to introduce, albeit unsuccessfully He goes in circles and when the story eventually ends, the dedicated reader who might have laboured through the pages would heave a sigh of relief, not at a beautiful end the end is quite bland and unconvincing but that the struggle is finally over Cinders of the Volcano, though beautifully written in an epistle or letter style, has its flaw in the almost too obvious story line The plot runs like the conventional Nigerian movie screen play with all due apologies to them After a first few lines, one immediately gets the drift and can almost accurately predict the end of the story that shows the violation of Angela, the teenage girl, in the absence of her mother and her reluctance to let anyone know To the author s credit though, the name that appears as the writer of the letter, turns out to be the same person that the letter is addressed to The writer is writing to herself, this forms a ready and beautiful surprise, considering the instructions that the addressed is given, like publishing the letter in case the writer dies or disappears In all, one notices in Dul Johnson s first collection of short stories, Shadows and Ashes, the hand of a focused and matured writer, one who is not rushing to write but rather takes time to produce a beautiful piece, which the work turns out to be in the end
