Homework Help: English-cry the beloved country

Posted by bob on Monday, May 2, 2011 at 5:58pm.

Cry, the Beloved Country refers at various points to the fear that exists in South African society. According to the novel, what are the causes of this fear and what are the consequences of this fear? Include evidence from the novel to support your response.

In Chapter 7, Msimangu and Kumalo are discussing Kumalo’s brother and, more generally, the problems of South Africa. Msimangu tells Kumalo an important belief that he holds:
Yes, that is right about power, he said. But there is only one thing that has power completely, and that is love. Because when a man loves, he seeks no power, and therefore he has power. I see only one hope for our country, and that is when white man and black men, desiring neither power nor money, but desiring only the good of their country, come together to work for it.
What examples are there in the novel of people who love and therefore do not seek power? How are the deeds done in Ndotsheni in Book III proof that the belief that Msimangu expresses here is correct? Write one paragraph on the characters in the novel and write a second paragraph on the deeds in Ndotsheni in Book III.
