Seminar paper from the 12 months 2005 within the topic English Language and Literature reports - Literature, grade: 1,0, collage of Duisburg-Essen, language: English, summary: [...] even supposing there's a range of of average arguments for no longer welcoming Turkey
to the eu “family”, corresponding to monetary in addition to political and moral, the bulk of
Turkish humans give some thought to prejudices opposed to Turks because the genuine reason behind their rejection: they
are (culturally) too varied and greater than the half the ecu electorate are opposed to a
Turkish club within the european. as a substitute, a “privileged partnership” is being proposed by
some conservative ecu governments (or opposing events similar to the German Christian
Democratic party), rather than a whole club. i feel “full” should be emphasized here
because it ability a true and well-meant friendship, a step in the direction of turning into a family members member
one day instead of an insignificant political (or strategical) best friend. good, kin means that there are
less modifications, that one is nearly alike. there are numerous eu tenets besides as
traditional perspectives which prevent a good discussion when you consider that Europe has but to rid itself of some
of its risky principles (“maleficent” fictions) which set the area ablaze within the twentieth century.
Neither Nigeria is in truth said, neither is (in the minds of many a ecu critic)
Achebe’s writing universal5, neither is Turkey’s fourty-year outdated endeavour to turn into a full
European member appropriate. there's, intellectually, an issue at the a part of Europe to
accept the belief of equality which Achebe has been over and over attempting to indicate either in his
novels and in his essays (which is identical cause, i feel, why Turkey is so not easy performed by):
feeling of superiority. this is the reason Achebe’s books lack the standard of common eu (or
Western) books and is simply acceptable to Nigeria and also the cause of Turkey being a
second-rate kingdom. either one of those options show classical eu rules that would – in all
probability – turn out to be fake through the process the twenty-first century. so as to
support my thesis, which I admit sounds far-fetched at the start look, i'll confer with Chinua
Achebe’s money owed on colonial feedback and, anyplace attainable, evaluate them to the recent
issue in ecu dealings with the opposite, i.e. the Turk. i'll afterward concentrate on the novels
“Arrow of God” and “A guy of the People”, rather at the element of faith in “Arrow
of God” and the post-colonial phenomena of Nigeria in “A guy of the People”.
