In the late s Camara Laye returned to Africa, where he worked in a variety of official capacities for the government of newly independent Guinea. At the beginning of this masterpiece of African literature, Clarence, a white man, has been shipwrecked on the coast of Africa.

Flush with self-importance, he demands to see the king, but the king has just left for the south of his realm. Traveling through an increasingly phantasmagoric landscape in the company of a beggar and two roguish boys, Clarence is gradually stripped of his pretensions.

Opening in medias res, The Radiance of the King is narrated in the third person but from the point of view of Clarence, a white man whose limited perceptions reveal ironic discrepancies between.

/5(13). Anyway, Camara Laye's "The radiance of the king" (I read the original French "Le regard du roi" - I can only hope the translation is just as good) is a truly unique book in style and content.

Definitely a must-read!4/5. But coming upon Camara Laye’s Le Regard du roi in the English translation known as The Radiance of the King * was shocking.

This extraordinary novel, first published in France in and in the US inaccomplished something brand new. The clichéd journey into African darkness either to bring light or to find it is reimagined here.

The Radiance of the King by Camara Laye. At the beginning of this masterpiece of African literature, Clarence, a white man, has been shipwrecked on the coast of Africa.

Flush with self-importance, he demands to see the king, but the king has just left for the south of his realm. The two books I mention above have a subtlety of approach that is entirely lacking from ‘The Radiance of the King’.

Books that challenge preconceptions are always welcome, but Clarence’s preconceptions are that whites are better than blacks, and that everyone (white and black) should accept this/5(4). Although The Radiance of the King follows the white man’s attempt to comprehend an alien culture and to adjust to a nonrational mode of thought, the novel also suggests a traditional conception.

In Radiance of the King, Laye has written a book which we can read with enjoyment, amusement, and keen absorption, but which occupies the mind in such a way that new perceptions keep rising to its surface when the reading is over.
