Abstract

[V. S. Naipaul is a firm believer in an overarching universal culture built on progress and rationality. He represents the assimilated and monocular colonial self, attributing the failures of Third World societies he writes about to the inherent backwardness and indignity of its peoples, disregarding cultural specificity and falling into the trap of racist evaluations. This article examines Naipaul's reification of age-old colonial images by concentrating on the synchronic realities of the places he writes about (particularly Africa), thus furthering the West's Africanist discourse with all its ideological and imperialist connotations. ﺑﻴﻦ ﺍﻟﺤﻔﺎﻭﺓ ﺍﻟﺸﺪﻳﺪﺓ ﻣﻦ ﺍﻟﻨﻘﺎﺩ ﺍﻟﻐﺮﺑﻴﻴﻦ ﻭﺍﻟﻬﺠﻮﻡ ﺍﻷﺷﺪ ﻣﻦ ﻧﻘﺎﺩ ﺍﻟﻌﺎﻟﻢ ﺍﻟﺜﺎﻟﺚ ﻳﺒﺮﺯ ﺩﻭﺭ ﻧﺎﻳﭙﻮﻝ ﻛﻮﺍﺣﺪ ﻣﻦ ﺃﻫﻢ ﻛﺘﺎﺏ ﺃﺩﺏ ﺍﻟﺮﺣﻼﺕ ﻓﻲ ﺍﻟﻘﺮﻥ ﺍﻟﻌﺸﺮﻳﻦ٠ ﻭﺗﻮﺿّﺢ ﻫﺬﻩ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺎﻟﺔ ﺗﺒﻨّﻲ ﻧﺎﻳﭙﻮﻝ ﻟﻠﻨﻤﻮﺫﺝ ﺍﻟﻐﺮﺑﻲ ﻓﻲ ﺗﺼﻮﻳﺮﻩ ﻟﺸﻌﻮﺏ ﺍﻟﻌﺎﻟﻢ ﺍﻟﺜﺎﻟﺚ ﺍﻟﺘﻲ ﺗﻨﺎﻭﻟﻬﺎ ﻓﻲ ﻛﺘﺎﺑﺎﺗﻪ (ﺧﺎﺻﺔ ﹰﺃﻓﺮﻳﻘﻴﺎ)؛ ﺣﻴﺚ ﻳﻤﻴﻞ ﻧﺎﻳﭙﻮﻝ ﺇﻟﻰ ﺇﻋﺎﺩﺓ ﺍﺳﺘﺨﺪﺍﻡ ﻧﻔﺲ ﺍﻟﻘﻮﺍﻟﺐ ﺍﻟﺠﺎﻣﺪﺓ ﺍﻟﺘﻲ ﻭﺭﺛﻬﺎ ﻋﻦ ﺃﺷﺪ ﺍﻟﻜﺘﺎﺏ ﻋﻨﺼﺮﻳﺔ ﻓﻲ ﻣﺤﺎﻭﻟﺔ ﻹﻟﻘﺎﺀ ﺍﻟﻼﺋﻤﺔ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺷﻌﻮﺏ ﻫﺬﻩ ﺍﻟﺪﻭﻝ٬ ﺑﺪﻻﹰ ﻣﻦ ﺇﻟﻘﺎﺀ ﺍﻟﻀﻮﺀ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺩﻭﺭ ﺍﻹﺳﺘﻌﻤﺎﺭ ﻭﺃﻋﻮﺍﻧﻪ٠ ﻭﻓﻲ ﺫﻟﻚ٬ ﻧﺠﺪ ﺃﻥ ﻧﺎﻳﭙﻮﻝ - ﺑﺎﻟﺮﻏﻢ ﻣﻦ ﺃﺻﻮﻟﻪ ﺍﻟﻬﻨﺪﻳﺔ - ﻻ ﻳﺨﺘﻠﻒ ﻛﺜﻴﺮﺍﹰ ﻓﻲ ﻛﺘﺎﺑﺎﺗﻪ ﻋﻦ ﻛﺘّﺎﺏ ﺍﻷﺩﺏ ﺍﻷﻭﺭﻭﺑﻲ ﺍﻹﺳﺘﻌﻤﺎﺭﻱ٬ ﺧﺎﺻﺔ ﻣﺎﻛُﺘِﺐَ ﻓﻲ ﺃﻭﺍﺧﺮ ﺍﻟﻘﺮﻥ ﺍﻟﺘﺎﺳﻊ ﻋﺸﺮ ﻭﺃﻭﺍﺋﻞ ﺍﻟﻘﺮﻥ ﺍﻟﻌﺸﺮﻳﻦ٠]
