    The book analyzes the novel Ordained by the Oracle through socio-cultural, symbolic and anthropological frameworks. It examines funeral rituals, the duality between the visible and invisible worlds, and the role of the oracle, spirits and ancestors in society. The study sheds light on the notions of space, time, myth and reality in the Akan society. It demonstrates that literature crosses disciplinary boundaries and can be seen as a form of anthropology. The analysis will be of interest to students and researchers in African studies, literature, religion, culture, sociology, and anthropology.
