Directions for the question:

The traditional art of Africa plays a major part in the African society. Most ceremonies and activities (such as singing, dancing, story-
telling, etc..) cannot function without visual art. It can also be used as an implement and insignia of rank or prestige, or have a religious
significance. African art consists mainly of sculptures, paintings, fetishes, masks, figures, and decorative objects.
Sculptures are considered to be the greatest achievement for African art. A majority of the sculptures are done in wood but are also
made of metal, stone, terra-cotta, mud, beadwork, ivory, and other materials. It is found in many parts of Africa but mainly in western
and central Africa. Many ancient rock paintings have been found in Southern and Eastern Africa. These paintings are believed to be
attributed to the Bushman people. Masks and fetishes are often used to scare off bad things such as evil spirits, witches or ghosts. They
are also used to bring about a desired end-break a bad habit, improve ones love life, or kill a natural or supernatural enemy.
There are three basic themes of African art. The first is the dualism between bush and village. African tribes wear masks and
headdresses: the male is represented by the elephant, the most powerful of bush creatures and the female is delicately coiffed to
express refinement and civilization. The second theme of African art is the problematic relationships between the sexes. African tribes
use art as a therapeutic device to deal with the problems and issues dealing with the relations between the sexes. The third theme is
the struggle to control natural or supernatural forces to achieve a desired end. African tribes often use masks in ceremonies (called
Gelede) to please and honor the forces.
For each region in Africa, there is a different style of art. The western Sudanic Region has masks and figures representing legendary
ancestors and religious sacrifices. The central Sudanic Region art includes mud architecture; embroidered textiles elaborate coiffure,
metal and beadwork jewelry, and leatherwork. This style, usually doesnt, represent anything special. The west Guinea Coast Region use
masks and figures to police ceremonies punish people for doing something wrong, settle land-owning problems and starter end wars.
The Central Guinea Coast Region art employs aristocratic materials. Specialized artists create works of art for the leaders that include:
stools, drums, cloth, pottery, terra-cotta, figures, miniature masks, combs, mirrors, pipes, and carved musical instruments. African art
is traditionally essential and optimistic. Without art, there would be no African culture.

Directions for the question:

Read the following passage and answer the questions given below.

Dear Katharine:
I have read the Nabokov stories, and I think they are both perfect. Not a word should be changed. From the way you talked about
Signs and Symbols, I had imagined something like the work of the French naturalists at their most malodorous and ghoulish; but the
details in Nabokovs story are of the most commonplace kind. The point is that the parents of the boy are getting ideas of reference,
too, and without these details the story would have no meaning. I dont see how anybody could misunderstand the story as you people
seem to have done or could object to the details in themselves, and the fact that any doubt should have been felt about them suggests
a truly alarming condition of editors daze. If The New Yorker had suggested to me that the story had been written as a parody, I should
have been just as angry as you say he was (Im surprised that he has not challenged somebody to a duel), and as I should be every
time I get a New Yorker proof of one of my literary articles, if I thought I was obliged to take seriously the ridiculous criticisms made in
the office and did not know, having once been an editor myself, that they were the result of having read so much copy that the editors
could no longer pay attention to what was being said.
Besides this, there is, however, the whole question of The New Yorker fiction about which I hear more complaint than about anything
else in the magazine. It is appalling that Nabokovs little story, so gentle and every day, should take on the aspect for The New Yorker
editors of an overdone psychiatric study. (How can you people say it is overwritten?) It could only appear so in contrast with the
pointless and inane little anecdotes that are turned out by The New Yorkers processing mill and that the reader forgets two minutes
after he has read them if, indeed, he has even paid attention, at the time his eye was slipping down the column, to what he was
reading about. The New Yorker has got to the age when magazines get hardening of the arteries; it thinks it is obliged to supply
something that it thinks its public likes and is continually afraid of jarring that public, though the only thing that any public wants is to
be interested. It is also, as a humorous magazine specializing in comic newsbreaks, morbidly afraid of printing anything that could
possibly seem unintentionally funny.
I am speaking mainly of the fiction; the non-fiction side, it seems to me, has been lately a little bolder. But I have a personal interest in
the fiction side, too, stories in both my last two books that might perfectly well have appeared in The New Yorker and that the only thing
that kept them out was that they were done from a sharp point of view, that they were not pale and empty and silly enough.
I have written this out at length so that you could show it to anybody who objected to the Nabokov story and use it perhaps in your
anti-editing campaign.
I have just read My English Education, and it, too, seems to me perfect for The New Yorker. I cant imagine what doubts you would
have about it. It doesnt get anywhere, it is just a little reminiscence, but in this respect it doesnt differ from Menckens childhood
memories, of which The New Yorker printed any number. If its a question of writing, as I thought you implied, I am not sure what is
meant by the word raiser in the fourth line of page 5, but otherwise I dont see anything to which exception could possibly be taken.
And since I have become aroused, I might go on, in this connection, to protest against The New Yorkers idea of style. The editors are so
afraid of anything that is unusual, that is not expected, that they put a premium on insipidity and banality. I find, in the case of my own
articles, that if I ever coin a phrase or strike off a picturesque metaphor, somebody always objects. Every first-rate writer invents and
renews the language; and many of the best writers have highly idiosyncratic styles; but almost no idiosyncratic writer ever gets into The
New Yorker. Who can imagine Henry James or Bernard Shaw or Dos Passos of Faulkner in The New Yorker? The object here is as far
as possible to iron all the writing out so that there will be nothing vivid or startling or original or personal in it. Sid Perelman is almost
the sole exception, and I have never understood how he got by.
Edmund Wilson
35. Edmund Wilsons chief contention in this letter is that:

1
Nabokov deserves more than a brush-off on account of eccentricities in his writing.
)
