One of Pasolini's least known books, it is also one of his most important challenges to himself and to the world. The book pits assumed Western cultural supremacy against the battle for Africa's freedom and self-assertion. The Savage Father offers a deep analysis of the internal struggles between the colonizer and the colonized, as well as showing us the externalized conditioning to which both are prey.
