I note in your analysis of Marechera you completely avoid any gender analysis which would highlight the misogyny embedded in much of his writing. "All things to all men" is an apt description. Yes he was an exceptional writer but at what point do we begin to separate that from his obvious disdain and utter disrespect for women.

i must confess i have not read this fellow called Marechera though i have heard a lot of irreverent thing said about him.I think now is my time to catch the marecheramania.Come to think of it,i see a bit of our own Okigbo in him.
