Agotime: her legend by Judith Illsley Gleason Download PDF EPUB FB2

This is the story of Agõtĩme, a Dahomean queen, who became part of the exodus of slaves from West Africa to Brazil. She is a historical figure, a legend, as well as this book's main character.

Part I recounts the real country of Dahomey (modern-day Benin)--the intertwined royal heritage, religious cult of Water Spirit vodũ, and divination system of Fa/5. The story of 19th-century West African Agotime, the daughter of a Mall priest, captured by the King of Dahomey and made one of his queens.

Their son is chosen by the oracles as successor, but upon the king's death he flees into the jungle and Agotime is sold into slavery. The odyssey of Agotime transcends and eclipses the sinister motive for her voyage, as cargo in the sordid slave trade.

An entirely alternate and vigorous point of view from history which is rendered with artistry - I highly recommend this book and thank the owner of a copy for having graciously loaned it out.5/5(4).
