Art and Political suggestion in Bole Butake, via a pluralist severe process, interrogates Butake’s significant artistic works—Lake God, And Palm Wine Will Flow, The Survivors, Shoes and 4 males in Arms, Dance of the Vampires and The Rape of Michelle —mainly when it comes to their political underpinnings and cultural signification. The goal is to put his drama in the socio-political matrix of Cameroon and exhibit the topicality of the problems of governance, marginalization, and corruption in Cameroon or Africa that Butake continually foregrounds in his artistic works.
Lake God and The Rape ofMichelle.

Lake God, for instance, are projected via a supernatural frame.

The end appraises the contemporaneity of Butake’s drama. His oeuvre maintains to motivate such a lot of humans: from disenfranchised teams that see in his drama a route to reclaiming liberties and to critics who're challenged to hone their literary instruments within the recreation to situate his works in the dynamics of politics and tradition in Africa.
