Mary is a daughter of Mr. And Mrs. Dalton.She is born in a very wealthy family.Her death in the novel which Bigger is responsible for, marks the turning point of Native Son.Mary’s character defines her as a progressive personality as she defies social boundaries and even her parents by dating a communist(Jan).She is committed to improving the lives of the blacks both politically and personally in America.Mary is characterized by good intentions, but she is too young either to commit fully to her chosen course or to have a complex understanding of those people she wants to render help.
Another good character of Mary Dalton in the novel is her sense of hospitality; she tries to treat Bigger as a human being, but little does she know that Bigger might be surprised and confused by such unpreccedented treatment from the wealthy white daughter who happens to be his employer.As an anti-racist, Mary thinks that Bigger will embrace her friendship because to her, Bigger simply represents a political course she is fighting to achieve, that is bringing racism to an end in the blacks dominated Chicago.Through her friendly disposition, Mary portrays a lifestyle filled with humility, tolerance and high rate of submissiveness which is in sharp contrast with her father’s racial sentiments. She swallows her personal qualities,thoughts and background only to befriend Bigger because he is black, which is a social taboo to other whites racial champions.
In addition, Mary treats and cares for Bigger with thoughtless racism unlike the overt hypocrisy of her parents.Despite all her good thoughts and feelings for Bigger, she is tragically murdered by the same person she cares for(Bigger).To sum it up, Mary in her simple life, represents a new breed of America whose mission is terminated by a racial victim
No 3)
This is the most dominant theme of the novel in which Bayo uses Yaremi and other widows to paint the pictures of loneliness and adverse conditions associated with widowhood.The sudden exit of Ajumobi leaves Yaremi in outer loneliness.As a widow, Yaremi is faced with both domestic and societal challenges.She talks and walks alone unlike when her bosom companion is alive who always cherishes and plays with Yaremi.With the marriage of Yaremi’s two daughters and long stay of her only son in the city of Ibadan, her state of loneliness is worsen.She has neither children nor husband to share her feelings with both in the day or in the night.
The presence of Woye in Yaremi’s house partially breaks her moments of solitude, yet she is psychologically lonely in that most of her ideas die inside her without second thought from anyone.Apart from Yaremi, Dedewe, Fayoyin and Radeke share their unique experiences of widowhood respectively.As widows,they are dehumarized above the permission of good conscience.Also, they are lured and forced into second marriage as legalized by the widows’ traditional injunction of Kufi Land.When Yaremi defies the cap-taking ritual; she is totally rejected by everyone;both men and women avoid her “like a leper”.Judging from what has befallen Yaremi, she has come to “a most painful continuation of her realization that it is going to be a lonely days”.
The theory of traditionalism is a belief that customs and traditions are more important for a society than modern ideas while spiritualism emphasizes a kind of belief that people who have died can send message to living people, usually through a medium.These two beliefs are well prominent in the novel.Yaremi being a women of neccessity is tied with these ideologies, thereby, she is being forced by tradition to go for a second marriage without options of choice and self determination.By the reason of traditional bottleneck,Lanwa is to inherit Yaremi as a second wife reasoning from the fact that he is Ajumobi’s half brother.
More so, the novel unveils the belief of spiritualism in the relationship of Ajumobi and Yaremi after his death.There are evidences in the novel where Ajumobi is conversing with Yaremi in dreams.The appearance of Ajumobi in many places in the novel shows the faith of the village in spiritualism.In addition, Kufi people are habituated to celebrating their ancestral gods and reverencing them.Thus, however, typifies spiritualism.
It is not an over statement to say that widows in Kufi village are inside the hot pot of victimization.Consequent upon the death of their husbands,their simple lives are torn apart.They live under the mercy of their husbands’ relatives and inhuman tradition that is bent on molesting women, especially the widows.None of the widow in the novel goes scot-free from their male-superiors.Dedewi for instance gushes out blood amidst over-heated torture.Yaremi herself is emblematic of human abuse and supression.Her resistance to second marriage is the reason behind her excommunication and abuse of her fundamental human rights.She is not only ostracized but her belongings are confiscated by the village.It is expected that everybody must frown at inhumanity and victimization of the helpless ones around rather we must embrace one another in love and also defend the weaklings in our midst
