Mr. Eric Butterworth: A Short Story

 Ramzi Ben Mohamed MARROUCHI

Abstract
Butterworth, the English scholar and the college professor, whose thirst for discovery knows no limits and accordingly leads to his downfall. An eternal journey to darkness, to destiny and eternity. A bitter quest for the self and the unknown that is shrouded in mystery. Africa the land of fertility and sterility, the battle field, and the cemetery where aliens are entrapped, baited and thus preyed ruthlessly. Butterworth’s and Akhona’s unfulfilled desire and passion to join eternity is heart-breaking. The short story is a meticulous reflection of Africanness and the African sensibility.
