dc.description The culture of the African has been destroyed and supplanted by infiltration and colonialism. The life to which the African is consigned to is an economic imperialistic order that results in bribery and does not enable him to rise to a high level. This paper tries to investigate how Honey is used as a symbol to ‘seal’ the lips of those who could have revealed all the secrets of Ananse , the trickster in the play. This, I see as analogous to our modern society where peoples’ mouths are also ‘sealed’ when they are bribed with money to keep certain important things secret that ought to be known by the public.
